3. Adopt an Orangutan

From the moment a baby orangutan is prised away from its dead mother, its life changes forever. For 75% of the infants it is the beginning of the end. The lucky few find their way to rescue centres. In northern Sumatra, the Orangutan Foundation works with a centre dedicated to the confiscation, quarantine and reintroduction back to the wild of orphaned orangutans illegally taken from the wild for the pet trade.

Here, helpless baby apes are at last comforted and reassured and receive much needed mothering, companionship and expert veterinary care before entering a reintroduction programme.

By adopting an orangutan you will help to provide him or her with the loving care they depend upon as they embark on the slow journey back to the wild. Your adoption will also benefit the other orphans at the centre.

Price: £24.95 for a year's adoption.
You can also become a member of the Orangutan Foundation: Individual Life Membership is £350 and Corporate is £1000. Annual Memberships are: Individual £25; Patron £120; Family £40; Student & Senior £12; Junior £12
