Some people travel to see differences, others make a difference. Which one are you?

Take a bold action to help prevent orangutan extinction.

All of us can take an important step for the conservation of our natural forests. You have the opportunity to make a difference. We believe that every effort, no matter how small, can create positive change.

Please note, the Bornean orangutan population has declined by 75% since 1900 [1], and currently there are only an estimated 54,000 Bornean orangutans left in the wild [2]. With a continued decline in numbers and given the immediate threats to their habitat, hunting, and illegal trade, this exclusive Asian species native to the island of Borneo, is listed as an Endangered species.
