Your support is urgently needed today to help Orangutan Foundation International raise $640,000 to purchase, protect, and restore 6,400 acres of critical orangutan habitat. To date, we’ve raised more than $250,000!
Known as the Rawa Kuno Legacy Forest, this vast biologically-rich forest is home to an estimated 50-100 orangutans and many other endangered species. Yet, like so much of Borneo’s forestland, it is currently at risk of being clear-cut and converted to palm oil agriculture–a monoculture in which few, if any, species can survive. Without OFI’s immediate intervention–and your financial support–this forest habitat will be lost forever. Read more about the story and ecology of the Rawa Kuno Legacy Forest.
Sponsor acres! Your generous sponsorship support will ensure the permanent protection of Rawa Kuno Legacy Forest, safeguard an existing population of wild orangutans, and create a much-needed sanctuary for the release of orphaned and rehabilitated orangutans back to the wild. Let this be your legacy!
