About The Orangutan Project

Founded by Leif in 1998, The Orangutan Project is an international charity striving to save Critically Endangered orangutans from extinction. The organisation takes a holistic approach to orangutan conservation, including supporting the rescue, rehabilitation and release of infant and displaced orangutans, and the protection and renewal of orangutan habitat. It also recognises the importance of support at grassroots level and works closely with local communities. The Orangutan Project’s goal is to help legally secure eight intact, rainforest ecosystems so all species of orangutan can live in secure populations for the decades to come.
