Recently Dr. Galdikas and a small group of Canadians, including former students and a pioneering orangutan researcher now living in Canada, established Orangutan Foundation Canada (OFC) in Vancouver, B.C. during 2011. Tax-deductible charity status was granted by the Canadian government in 2012.
Most recently, Orangutan Foundation International Australia (OFIA) was established in Australia by Kobe Steele, Stephen Van Mil, and other passionate, like-minded people who collectively have over 100 years of experience working with wildlife. OFIA has focused on protecting orangutan habitat, tropical rain forest, by helping OFI buy it.
