A Wild Place for Endangered Orangutans

Help us protect critical orangutan habitat!

Your support is urgently needed to help Orangutan Foundation International (OFI) purchase and permanently protect prime orangutan habitat in Central Kalimantan, Indonesian Borneo. This forestland adjoins OFI’s recently purchased Rawa Kuno Legacy Forest – and will provide an essential wildlife corridor to the Village Protected Forest established by the local community of Pasir Panjang and OFI.

A Unique Opportunity to Expand and Safeguard OFI’s Protected Forest Habitat

Known as the Orangutan Legacy Forest, this important, biologically-rich forest area is home to more than 100 orangutans and other endangered wildlife species. Its acquisition and permanent protection is key to ensuring the health and safety of the region’s last remaining wild orangutan population. Read more about the importance and ecology of the Orangutan Legacy Forest.

Like so much of Borneo’s forestland, unprotected portions of the Orangutan Legacy Forest are currently at risk of being clear-cut and converted to palm oil agriculture or timber concessions. Without OFI’s immediate intervention—and your financial support—this forest habitat could be lost forever.

Sponsor acres! Your generous financial donation will ensure the permanent protection of the Orangutan Legacy Forest and its population of wild orangutans. It will also create a much-needed sanctuary for the release of orphaned and rehabilitated orangutans back into the wild. Let this be your legacy!
