How you can make a real difference

Adopt an orang-utan with WWF

The orang-utan's very survival is under threat as forest habitat is cleared to make way for plantations of oil palm, paper and timber.

There are now only about half the number of orang-utans left in the wild compared with 10 years ago.Your money can help us work towards:

  • Protecting and restoring the orang-utan's habitat
  • Setting up patrols to help stop illegal hunting and poaching
  • Working with governments, organisations and local people to help endangered species
  • Your support will also help fund other essential WWF conservation work around the world.
