Orangutans are the largest tree living mammals, spending over 90% of their lives high in the forest canopy. However, these beautiful creatures are under serious threat of becoming extinct with their greatest issue being loss of habitat.
Deforestation occurs for logging, palm oil production, mining and agricultural expansion. Over the last three decades, an estimated 80% of orangutan habitat has been lost. Other threats to orangutans include illegal hunting for meat, and capture for the exotic pet trade.
Adopting an orangutan with Born Free will provide support to the Orangutan Foundation and its vital conservation work to protect the Central Kalimantan province and sanctuary, and to safeguard the future of the precious orangutans who live there. Your adoption will also support Born Free’s campaign against the illegal trade in bushmeat, from apes and other threatened species, and their campaign in opposition of the live trade in apes.
