Rescue Sumatran Orangutans

Critically endangered Sumatran orangutans are facing another major threat to their habitat. Their rainforest homes are being rapidly replaced by agricultural developments, which makes simple survival for these gentle apes increasingly difficult. Food is getting harder to come by, and the continued loss of their forest sanctuaries has made orangutans more vulnerable to hunters and poachers than ever.

The Sumatran Orangutan Society works to protect, treat, and relocate these endangered apes to safer forest homes. Find out how you can help.

Find out about the shocking method these unique creatures use to scour their aquatic ecosystems for food.
