The Problem


There are numerous threats to the viability of the remaining wild orangutan population in Indonesia and Malaysia.  The primary threat is the loss of habitat with up to 80% of suitable forest in Indonesia and Malaysia having been lost in the past 20 years. Other threats, which often go hand-in-hand with the destruction of the rainforest, are the illegal pet trade and poaching.

Will you help these #cute little #Orphans? They urgently need a new #OrangutanJungleSchool, and you can #helpus build it.

With only three weeks left, we are still far from our goal. Please don't let our orangutan students down!

We must relocate their current #ForestSchool to a new site. Only through participating in our unique school program can these #babies learn how to survive in the wild one day.

Let's celebrate #WorldEnvironmentDay!

This year, the spotlight is on #landrestoration.

As part of the #genarationrestoration, we are helping restore degraded rainforest habitats for the #criticallyendangered Bornean #orangutans and thousands of other fauna and flora while supporting and working closely with #indigenous communities.

Meet Mawas, one of our working areas in Central Kalimantan!
