Orang-utan means 'man of the forest'. But the forest they live in is disappearing fast. And when the forest goes, so does the orang-utan.

Choose a one-off payment
Your money could go further if you pay by monthly direct debit: this supports our long-term planning and helps to keep our administration costs down.
How you can make a real difference
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.
Last minute gift?
