Sumatran Orangutan Society

Sumatran orangutans are critically endangered. Habitat loss and poaching are pushing them towards extinction. Help us ensure a brighter future for orangutans and their forests.

Founded 2000

  • Mission statement

    Sumatran orangutans are critically endangered and without urgent action could be the first Great Ape species to become extinct. SOS is dedicated to turning this situation around. We do this by:

    Supporting grassroots projects which empower local people to become guardians of the rainforests

    Restoring damaged orangutan habitat through tree planting programmes.

    Campaigning on issues threatening the survival of orangutans in the wild.

    Raising awareness about the importance of protecting orangutans and their rainforest home.

    SOS works to find local, national and international solutions to the root causes of deforestation. Our ultimate aim is to protect, extend and secure the habitat of wild orangutans to stabilise and grow the population.

    Help us protect orangutans, their forests and their future.
