Orangutans can only be found in Southeast Asia

Orangutans are endemic to rainforests on the islands of Borneo and Sumatra in the Indonesian Archipelago. Rainforests of the Far East, including Borneo and Sumatra, may be some of the most complex. Borneo and Sumatra support 10% of Indonesia’s known plant species, 12.5% of its mammals, and 17% of its other vertebrates.

Our Mission

The Orangutan Conservancy (OC) is dedicated to the protection of orangutans in their natural habitat through wild research, capacity building, education and public awareness programs, and by supporting numerous on-the-ground efforts to save Southeast Asia’s only great ape.
