Situation

Over the past 2 decades, hundreds of orphaned and displaced orangutans have been rescued and cared for in sanctuaries such as those operated by Borneo Orangutan Survival Foundation in Indonesia. These sanctuaries are now crowded and many of the orangutans are ready for release back to the forest. Finding safe forests for them has been a challenge, but it has been found. Now the only thing preventing them from going home is lack of funding.

Solution

Orangutan Land Trust will help support the release of these orangutans by the Borneo Orangutan Survival Foundation operating in Indonesia. By releasing orangutans, we can free up space in the rescue centres so they can take in more victims. Additionally, the released orangutans will collectively form a new, viable population in safe areas of forest, ensuring their long-term survival as a species in the wild.
