Protecting Orangutan Habitat!

A program to protect the orangutans and their natural habitat from further devastation.

Reforestation Takes Decades - Destruction Takes Seconds!

Did you know?

  • We are losing 6% of the world's forests every year.
  • That the destruction of rainforest causes more green-house gases than all the transport systems in the world combined.

You Can Help To Stop This Destruction

Support our Safeguard program. It gives practical support to our Wildlife Protection Units and Wardens, the frontline patrols that deter illegal logging, land clearing and wildlife crime in Borneo and Sumatra. They also provide much needed employment for the young men in the area whose only other option is often to work in the palm oil plantations – or not work at all.

Where Your Money Goes

The Safeguard program raises money specifically for Wildlife Protection Units and Wardens. Your donation goes towards the patrols' running costs - equipment, uniforms and wages. Every contribution is welcome and appreciated!

For more information on the care centres see our Projects.

Safeguard contributions (donations) of A$2.00 or more are tax deductible.
