Adopt An Orangutan

For as little as $12 a month, you can help support an orphaned or injured orangutan through rehabilitation in one of our care centres.

Only 1 out of 6 orphans are lucky enough to be rescued - over 1,000 orphaned orangutans are living in rescue and rehabilitation centres. Care of these infants is costly and requires 24hr staff, veterinary, and nurse care to ensure they are in a healthy condition and have the best chance to survive – and possibly even return to the wild.

All adoption money goes directly to helping the orphans at the various care centres we support:

We are in regular contact with the staff at the centres and TOP representatives visit the centres several regularly to get updates on the orphans and see how they are progressing. For the small sum you can make a real difference and help these orphans survive.

All adoption money goes directly to helping orphans at care centres we support and providing opportunities for a safe return to the wild.

Orphan Updates

TOP provides updates twice a year on each of our orphan orangutans available for adoption. This allows you to track their progress and see how they are being rehabilitated.

By adopting an orangutan you are providing:

  • Health care for orphaned orangutans
  • A nurturing and loving environment
  • Enrichment and stimulation to develop skills
  • Nutritious and healthy food
  • Bedding and play materials
  • Medical and veterinarian care
  • Forest school training and skills
  • Resources for orangutan rescues, releases and habitat protection

The Gokong Success Story

Gokong is currently in the Isolation Complex, where he is housed with other youngsters including Siboy, Bulan and Nadya.

Gokong no longer sleeps in the clinic with the other smaller infants. He has advanced to Stage Two and will sleep throughout the night, without requiring to sleep with others. When Gokong is taken into the small forest school, he is very clumsy and careless with his climbing. He will often fall or aim to climb high and throw himself down to the ground, army roll around and then get back up and climb again. This behaviour is very cheeky and is setting a bad example for other infants like Bulan who learn from him.
