These intelligent tree-dwellers are clinging to survival
The forests of Borneo were once teeming with orangutans. They are the ultimate forest gardeners, spreading seeds to help maintain the forest ecosystem.
But these magnificent primates are now under threat of extinction.
In the last 40 years, deforestation and unsustainable logging has destroyed 35% of their forest homes, thanks to demand for paper, timber and palm oil products. Humans are also a danger, poaching these great apes for the pet trade, food, or retaliation when they migrate to agricultural areas and destroy crops.
Adopting an orangutan today can help protect them from extinction. Your monthly donations will symbolise your support for conservation and animal advocacy, and ensure orangutans remain part of our environment forever.
And for each orangutan you assist, you'll also help a host of other species.
