2019 Projects

The Orangutan Conservancy (OC) is dedicated to the protection of orangutans in their natural habitat through wild research, capacity building, education and public awareness programs, and by supporting numerous on-the-ground efforts to save Southeast Asia’s only great ape.


On a rolling basis throughout the year we accept project proposals that specifically advance our mission statement. In doing so we have funded a number of projects throughout our lifespan. Every year we receive extensively researched project proposals that are aimed at advancing conservation efforts for wild and captive orangutans in rehabilitation centers. Here you will find which project proposals we have selected to fund for the year of 2019.

Take a look at our past projects or our project proposal application below:


Borneo Nature Foundation

Enhancing research infrastructure in Sebangau Forest to help study and protect the Critically Endangered Bornean Orangutan

The Orangutan Conservancy has chosen to award funding to The Borneo Nature Foundation’s infrastructure proposal, scheduled to take place in Sebangau Forest in Borneo later this year. This project is aimed at rebuilding an aging boardwalk that serves as a critical route for researchers, conservationists, students, and even wildlife!
