Mission Statement

Reseach, Conservation, Education

About our Mission


Welcome to the website of Orangutan Foundation International (OFI)! Here you will learn about the Great Red Apes, orangutans, and what OFI is doing to study and protect them and their only habitat, the tropical rain forests of Borneo and northern Sumatra.

The mission of the Orangutan Foundation International is to support the conservation, protection, and understanding of orangutans and their rain forest habitat while caring for ex-captive orangutan orphans as they make their way back to the forest.

Furthermore, OFI educates the public, school children, and governments about orangutans, tropical rain forests, and the issues surrounding orangutan and forest conservation and protection.

Thank you for stopping by. We hope you enjoy your visit. Your support can help us make a big difference in the survival of individual orangutans, as well as endangered wild orangutan populations and their forest habitats.
