At least 2,000 to 3,000 Orangutans are killed every year
We are on a mission to radically increase global awareness and urgent action to ensure the future survival of orangutans. We want to shake things up and won’t stop until we achieve critical mass whereby enough people worldwide take action on behalf of orangutans so they not only survive but thrive.

The number of people who know about Orangutans and are doing something is dwarfed by the billions of people who know nothing and aren’t taking action. We aim to change this.

We are dedicated to achieving critical mass and supporting key Orangutan initiatives. Our over-arching area of interst is in ensuring sufficient vital habitat and specific projects related to this broad issue will change over time.
We are partnering with Orangutan Foundation International to protect more than 7,900 acres of biologically-rich forest area in Borneo. This critical area is home to approximately 100 wild orangutans and is critical to their long-term survival in the wild. Our current project seeks to raise funds for four or five patrol posts at strategic locations in this area to secure it from illegal wildlife poachers, loggers, and other threats.
Fires, COVID, increased poaching threats, etc., strain already tight budgets. We raise funds to assist other orangutan-oriented organizations during times of crisis.
Orangutans eat up to 400 different types of plants with fruit comprising most of their diets.
