Every day is earth day to the Orangutan Conservancy, but we put even more emphasis on our amazing planet each April 22nd.

One particular part of the globe that we focus on is Indonesia – the only remaining home to wild orangutans on the planet.  Indonesia is increasingly under threat from palm oil, deforestation, mining and over burdening on its natural resources.  Orangutans call Borneo and Sumatra home, and only with continual work can we help to ensure that there will be enough rainforest conserved in the future to give these great apes a real chance for survival.

On this Earth Day 2015, we ask all of our supporters to take one step toward helping orangutans find a better future.  Visit our How to help page for ideas.
