Adopt an Orang-Utan

(From WWF Adopt an Animal)

In the last 10 years, Orang-utan numbers have fallen by up to 50% across the globe. You can help WWF safeguard the future of these beautiful creatures with a monthly adoption donation and help protect these gentle giants and their habitat.

Orang-utans are now only found on the islands of Borneo and Sumatra. If the current rate of deforestation continues, Borneo could lose most of its lowland forests in less than ten years, leaving these creatures with no where to live. By making a donation you will be helping WWF to create extended protected areas of rainforest, whilst also teaching local communities how to manage their area through sustainable use of natural resources.
