Now there are just 14,000 Sumatran orangutans and fewer than 800 Tapanuli orangutans.
They need the rainforests to thrive; fruit trees to feed from, and large areas of connected forest canopy so they can move safely, find mates and make a nest each night.
With your help, the Sumatran Orangutan Society can support the protection and restoration of over a million hectares of the orangutans’ forest homes.
That’s a lot of trees that need planting and protecting.
We use cutting-edge science to understand where forests need protection and what approaches we need in our conservation toolbox. This enables us to invest in locations and strategies which we believe will have the greatest impact.
We work in collaboration with local partners and with communities living alongside orangutans. We believe that taking a bespoke approach to protect, connect and rewild these landscapes is the best solution to help nature and people flourish together.
Please, if you can, donate now to support a thriving future for rare wild orangutans and their precious rainforest homes. Thank you.
