Orang-utan Gift

A Wonderful Gift

Give a gift that will help protect the future of orangutans and their habitats.

Orang-utan map

Orangutans spend a lot of time alone but have loose relationships with other orangutans in their community. They spend most of their lives in trees, where their long, strong arms help them swing through the forest canopy and hang from branches as they eat their favorite food – fruit.

Threats

Habitat loss

Conversion of forests to palm oil plantations is the biggest cause of habitat loss for orangutans. Road development, illegal logging and mining also impact it.

Palm oil

Peat swamp forests that are home to high densities of orangutans are often targeted for oil palm plantations. Palm oil is found in around 50% of products in your supermarket.

Human Silhouette

Human orangutan conflict

Up to 3,000 Bornean orangutans are thought to be killed each year due to hunting, conflict in agricultural areas and the illegal pet trade.

Illegal pet trade

Young orangutans up to the age of seven are sought after for the illegal pet trade.

How we can help

We’re working to identify and restore wildlife corridors between protected areas. This will reconnect previously fragmented orangutan habitat so there will be large blocks of interconnected forests.

We're also promoting the production and use of sustainable palm oil. We helped set up the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) which is working to transform markets and make sustainable palm oil the norm.

Your adoption and support will help us:

  • create and extend protected areas of rainforest
  • promote the buying and use of sustainable palm oil to manufacturers and consumers
  • promote sustainable use of natural resources
  • enable local communities to manage protected areas
  • fund our other essential work around the world
