Orangutan Foundation Donors & Supporters

The vital work that the Orangutan Foundation undertakes to conserve orangutans and their threatened tropical forest habitat is made possible through the programmatic and financial support of our partners, supporters, members and volunteers.

At the heart of our conservation strategy is the involvement of local communities who live close to areas of orangutan habitat. We have come to learn that through education, awareness and inclusion, our projects have greater success and sustainability.

GREAT APES SURVIVAL PARTNERSHIP (GRASP)The Foundation plays an active part in international networks to promote the conservation of orangutans and their habitats, and is on the Executive Committee of UNEP’s Great Apes Survival Partnership (GRASP).
