Virtual Adoption

The Orangutan Conservancy (OC) is emphasizing its commitment to wild orangutan conservation by offering for virtual adoption* of orangutans currently living in the Kutai National Park in East Kalimantan, Indonesia. By partnering with the Orangutan Kutai Project and the Kutai National Park authority, OC believes it can spur support and awareness of the wild orangutans in this fragile region.

Buy Art

Periodically, the Orangutan Conservancy partners with local and international artisans for the good of the conservation community. These accomplished creatives have agreed to donate a portion of their conservation-oriented products to the conservancy, thereby supporting our important projects in Southeast Asia.

Planned Giving

Planned giving offers a flexible way to contribute to the conservation of orangutans. By including the Orangutan Conservancy (OC) in your will or estate plan, you can help leave a legacy that will protect the orangutan into the future. Charitable bequests in your will or revocable living trust carry out your wishes for distributing assets to the cause you have supported during your lifetime. Charitable bequests can eliminate or reduce federal estate tax. If you wish to include OC in your estate plan, please contact us.

The legal language for wills and estate plans is as follows:

“The Orangutan Conservancy, a nonprofit corporation, organized and existing under the laws of the State of Colorado, and with principal business address in Los Angeles, California.”


Fundraisers are terrific! Even if you don’t have money to donate to the Orangutan Conservancy (OC), you can use your creativity and your time, and raise a bit of money to help orangutans. How about a neighborhood yard sale? A bake sale? Or a summer car wash? Draw the attention of friends, relatives and neighbors to the orangutan’s plight and enlist their support. Maybe your local Scout troop or church group would like to be involved. OC is happy to brainstorm with you about ideas.
