OUR LATEST RESCUE - ‘LAST TREE STANDING’
At 5pm on the 4th of February, we received a moving and poignant photograph from the OF-UK rescue teams in Indonesia.
This orangutan was immediately visible, stranded and clinging to the top of a tall thin and burnt tree – the only tree in sight in an area overtaken by oil-palm.

ORANGUTAN FOUNDATION'S 25TH ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION
Increasing critical orangutan habitat by 8,000 hectares
To mark our 25th Anniversary, we are launching an ambitious challenge to secure the future of 8,000 hectares of prime, critical orangutan habitat adjacent to the Lamandau Wildlife Reserve. This area (larger than Guernsey in the Channel Islands) would increase the size of the reserve by 15 per cent, bringing the total extent of its protected habitat to 64,000 hectares.
We need your support to make a long-term commitment to the Lamandau Wildlife Reserve by planning for the next 25 years. With your help, our vital conservation work can continue into the next quarter century.
Every donation will make a difference: both to orangutans and the tropical forest habitats that they need to survive.
