Adopt an Orangutan
Adopting an orangutan is an ideal gift and a great way to show you care.
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 as little as £30 yearly you can make a real difference in helping these orangutans to survive!
All adoption money goes directly towards helping orphaned orangutans in the Lamandau Wildlife Reserve.

When you adopt an orangutan with the Orangutan Foundation, you will receive:
- 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
We provide updates twice a year on each of your orphan orangutans. This allows you to track their progress and see how they are being rehabilitated.
Note* Due to the large number of orphans requiring care it is simply not possible for us to offer exclusive adoptions for each and every one of them - but rest assured that your adoption fees are being used to give your adopted orphan, along with many more just as needy, the best care possible. Each adoption offers real care to real orphans.
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.
