Adopt an ape today

Adopt an ape and you'll help protect jungle habitats for both primates and the other species which rely on them. From just £3 a month you'll be helping bring our world back to life.

WWF animal adoptions also make fantastic gifts. Choose from our range of apes below.

Choose which ape to adopt

Adopt a primate and help save the apes with WWF UK. Choose from a gorilla adoption or an orangutan adoption. Each species makes a great gift for both adults and kids. For a kids adoption, just choose the 'Under 12' welcome pack at checkout. 

Your donation helps us protect primates

The funds raised from these ape adoptions could help WWF: 

  • train rangers to detect and safely remove snares set for other animals, which can often injure or kill apes
  • support regular surveys of primate populations
  • create and extend protected areas of rainforest
  • support local communities in managing protected areas


The proceeds from your membership are not restricted to particular conservation projects, so you can be sure your contribution is going to where the funding is most needed.
