Adopt an Orangutan

Adopting an orangutan is an ideal gift and a great way to show you care.



Adopt Okto

Adopt Okto

Okto is a five-year-old male orangutan who has been in soft-release in the Lamandau Wildlife Reserve since October 2014. Okto was found near a town in Central Kalimantan, Indonesian Borneo by the local wildlife department and entrusted into the care of Orangutan Foundation.

Since his arrival he has learnit how to climb trees and which forest fruits to eat. Okto still needs to master his nest- making skills!


Adopt Mona

Adopt Mona

Mona is a two-year-old female orangutan who was rescued in March 2017. She was being kept in a cage as pet. We do not know what happened to her mother, but it was most likely she was killed.

Mona shares her home at Camp JL with male orangutan, Boy, and other females Nyunyu and Timtom, all a similar age. They often seen playing together, climbing, and swinging in the trees.


Only 1 out of 6 orphans are lucky enough to be rescued. Care of these orphans is costly, as they require veterinary care to ensure that they are in a healthy condition and have the best chance of survival in the wild.

From £30 a year you can make a real difference in helping these orangutans to survive!

  • An adoption certificate with your name on it

  • An orangutan fact-sheet

  • An Orangutan Foundation sticker

  • A soft-toy orangutan

  • Updates on your adopted orangutan every six months

Previous Successful Adoptions

Wenda was rescued in October 2009, when she was just one year old. She was found locked in a cage with another baby orangutan in a garage in someone's back yard. She was severely malnourished, had a distended "pot belly", dry skin and very sparse hair. Thanks to the many people that adopted her and supported the Orangutan Foundation’s work, Wenda was helped, receiving the loving care she needed.

We are very proud to tell you Wenda was released in 2014, embarking on the slow journey back to the wild. Your adoption above will now benefit orangutan conservation further into the future.
