At SOS, our mission is to protect orangutans, their forests, and their future. We work with local partners in orangutan landscapes towards our vision of wild orangutans thriving in resilient forests. We support the long-term conservation of these globally important rainforests through progressive, community-based conservation programmes, which address and overcome local pressures on orangutans by engaging forest-edge communities in grassroots conservation action.
SOS works at a landscape scale but on a local level. Our high-level strategy is underpinned by practical measures, implemented through our local partners, that make a real difference to orangutans, forests, and people. We develop and fund effective conservation programmes and partnerships, supporting immediate boots-on-the-ground protection, building the capacity of our partner organisations, and setting the wheels in motion for long-term conservation solutions.
