Why Orangutan Appeal UK?

We are the only non-governmental organisation (NGO) who has been given permission to work on behalf of the famous Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre. Sepilok has set the standard as one of the oldest and most well respected rehabilitation centers in Borneo and has carried out more than 300 releases to date. At Orangutan Appeal UK, we know it isn’t enough to release orangutans back in to the wild when the same threats still exist. Therefore we release the rehabilitated orphans in to the protected Tabin and Kabili reserves and track the conservation effort through our groundbreaking Post-Release Monitoring Project. We also sponsor many other projects across Malaysia and Indonesia.
