Would you like to adopt an orangutan or a bird of prey? We can offer you this opportunity!


Orangutan sponsorship

With the sponsorship you support the survival of the Sumatran orangutans and the preservation of their habitat. Every single orangutan released back into the rainforest gives us hope in the fight against the extinction of these great apes.

Our godparent animal


Hope was brought to us in March 2019. Her tragic story received media attention around the world: She was brought into our rescue and rehabilitation with 74 air rifle bullets in her body and a broken shoulder. A Swiss orthopaedic surgeon operated on the severely injured orangutan and saved her life. Unfortunately, Hope lost her eyesight, due to the air rifle bullets and will have to stay with us.

Your sponsorship for an orangutan

What does a sponsorship contain

How much does it cost

«Receiving reports from my sponsored animal makes me happy. It's great to hear about my orangutan's progress! These small, reliable donations, where you know what the money is used for, are what count!»
