Meet the Trustees

Our board of trustees is in charge of the governance and strategic direction of the charity. They volunteer their time and skills to OPF, ensuring the money you donate is used in the best possible way to support the rescue, rehabilitation and long-term protection of the orangutan.

We also have two wonderful ambassadors on the team who play an instrumental role in raising awareness about the orangutans and their plight.
