Back to the Trees, an OFI Release – Official Orangutan Foundation International Site
Please read our Covid-19 status and policy update Read Here Dismiss

In this video, Orangutan Foundation International (OFI) embarks on the release of four rehabilitated wild born ex-captive orangutans into protected forest. Moments like these represent the core mission of OFI, giving orangutans a second chance to grow up and be free.

An orangutan release is a special event as it signifies hope in the plight for survival of their species. Orangutan populations continue to be threatened due to the destruction of their habitat. Over the past 20 years, 90% of the world’s orangutan habitat has been destroyed.

Join OFI as Elvis, Hermie, Maxine and Wilkie begin again where they left off, in the forest environment they are so wonderfully adapted to live in, explore, and enhance.
