Why Save Orangutans?

They Are Part Of Who We Are

The rainforests of Borneo and Sumatra are a living, breathing ecosystem that contributes to the balance of our planet's climate.

That's the big stuff.

Orangutans are fondly known as the Gardeners and Guardians of these vast areas, covering great distance over many days through the canopy, harvesting fruits and dropping seeds that promote the diversity of the flora that populates the forests.

Without Orangutans, and other major mammals such as sunbears and clouded leopards, diversity would suffer.

Don't mind us, we're just hanging around!
