How to Help

Just as orangutans across Indonesia count on us being there for their care and comfort, we too count on you to keep our mission strong. 

Making a donation is the easiest and fastest way for you to help orangutans in the wild! With your help we will continue to support projects that rescue and rehabilitate orangutans, increase awareness of the ongoing issues that threaten the future of orangutans and their rainforest homes, protect biodiversity, and benefit local communities.

The Orangutan Conservancy offers a variety of merchandise: t-shirts, bags, caps, magnets, mouse pads, mugs, postage stamps and more. Each is decorated with orangutan images in natural settings for you and your friends to admire. OC works with Zazzle, a licensed USPS vendor, to produce these charming items. A percentage of your purchase is donated back to OC. 

Amazon Smile is the same as shopping on Amazon (same look, same prices), but with each of your purchases Amazon will donate a small percentage to our organization. By simply switching the site with which you purchase your Amazon goodies and at no additional cost to, you can be helping to save orangutans each and every day!

The Orangutan Conservancy is very excited to have our very own “Save the Orangutan” wristbands and reusable bags!

Donate old cell phones or pagers to help communities and to save endangered species. Yes! You heard that right, even your dusty pagers in the back of your office drawers can be donated in the name of orangutan conservation! Everyone benefits: communities receive technology, the environment is protected from the toxic waste of throwing away unwanted phones, resources are saved by reusing the phones, habitats and animals are protected, and you can get rid of that old phone or pager.

The Orangutan Conservancy offers an exciting new way to learn about orangutans and to help support the Orangutan Kutai Project’s conservation efforts by offering virtual adoptions of wild orangutans living in the Kutai National Park in Borneo for $120 per year. A virtual  adoption packet makes a great gift for a friend or family member who loves animals, and is an exciting and educational way for classrooms to fundraise while learning more about orangutan conservation issues.

Stage a local fundraiser for OC, post flyers, volunteer, increase awareness about orangutans on social media,  only buy sustainably-sourced palm oil and other consumer items, link to the OC website — and follow our work on the go through one of our mobile apps. 

Even if you cannot donate to OC, you can use your creativity, passion and a little of your time to  help orangutans in some way today!
