A Bit About Us:

Sumatran orangutans are critically endangered. Habitat loss and poaching are pushing them towards imminent extinction. Every minute, every day an area equal to six football fields of Indonesian forest disappears!

With less than 7,000 surviving in the wild, it is predicted that the Sumatran Orangutan will be the first Great Ape species to become extinct if current trends continue. The Sumatran Orangutan Society works with local communities living alongside orangutan habitat, helping them work towards a more sustainable future for their forests.
