Orangutan Conservation Projects

Join an Orangutan project in Borneo and help the conservation efforts for these Great Apes. Native to Indonesia and Malaysia, the Orangutan population can now only be found in the rainforests of Borneo and Sumatra and in a number of wildlife sanctuaries in throughout Borneo. Unfortunately the Orangutans are critically endangered and there is estimated to be fewer than 60,000 of them remaining in the two locations they now call home. The orangutan conservation projects we offer are attempting to counteract this problem and help to rescue, rehabilitate and release these animals.

Why Volunteer with Orangutans

The Orangutan species is close to extinction and it is mostly down to humans and human-animal conflict. However, you can help to reverse this trend. If you volunteer with orangutans, it is not only a rewarding experience for you, but for the apes themselves. Due to the ongoing issues facing the orangutan, there is always a constant need for volunteers to assist with their rehabilitation and eventual release back into the wild. Orangutans drastically need your help and what better time than now to do so.
