Donations Will Make A Difference

Join our existing donors and make a real difference. Most of our work is made possible by our individual donors who make a small monthly contribution. We have a strategy to ensure orphans and displaced orangutans are returned to the wild where they belong. We have a plan to ensure the survival of the orangutan in the wild. We need your help to enable us to put our plan into action.
