The Orangutan Conservancy is pleased to announce that we’ve just alligned with the Orangutan Project in Australia to help support their on-line orangutan adoption program that benefits orangutans in the rehabilitation facilities of Care and Quarantine Centre in Pangkalan Bun, the Nyaru Menteng Orangutan Reintroduction Project, the Batu Mbelin Orangutan Quarantine Centre and the Orangutan Rescue Centre.
From the TOP webpage:  “Only 1 out of 6 orphans are lucky enough to be rescued – over 1,000 orphaned orangutans are living in rescue and rehabilitation centres. Care of these infants is costly and requires 24hr staff, veterinary, and nurse care to ensure they are in a healthy condition and have the best chance to survive – and possibly even return to the wild.”
Learn more about this program by clicking on the “Adopt an Orangutan” link.
Along with TOP’s captive orangutan adoption program, the Orangutan Conservancy also continues to support the virtual wild orangutan adoption program that benefits the Orangutan Kutai Project.
