Saving the rainforest and the orangutans

Welcome to our website!

Our vision

Orangutans are threatened by extinction. Our vision is to protect the last wild orangutans and their home, the tropical rainforests on the islands of Borneo and Sumatra.

What we do

The focus of our work is on protecting orangutans and the rainforest.

We co-finance an orangutan sanctuary in Borneo. It takes care of orphaned orangutans whose mothers were killed by poachers, as well as injured orangutans and orangutans captured on palm oil plantations.

We also support a project in Borneo to reforest areas that were logged or burnt down. These areas also serve as release site for orangutans from Borneo.

On Sumatra, we give financial support to a release site.

Both in Indonesia and Germany we offer programs of environmental education, mostly for children but also for adults. In Germany we focus on informing the public about the connection between what we consume and the destruction of the rainforest. In Indonesia we provide information on conserving the rainforest and great apes as well as on ecological agricultural practices.

We make a point of collaborating with other organizations. We are a small charity and are aware that other NGOs share our vision. Our goal can be reached faster by joining forces instead of competing.
