Only 1 out of 6 orphans are lucky enough to be rescued – over 1,000 orphaned orangutans are living in rescue and rehabilitation centres. Care of these infants is costly and requires 24hr staff, veterinary, and nurse care to ensure they are in a healthy condition and have the best chance to survive – and possibly even return to the wild.
From as little as 8 EUR a month you can make a real difference and help some orangutan infants survive. All adoption money goes directly to helping the Sumatran Orangutan Conservation Programme at our Batu Mbelin Orangutan Quarantine Centre, North Sumatra, Indonesia.
We provide updates twice a year on each of our infant orangutans available for adoption. This allows you to track their progress and see how they are being rehabilitated. Due to the large number of orphans requiring care it is not possible to offer exclusive adoptions for each and every one of them – but rest assured that your adoption fees are being used to give many orphans the best care possible.
