Kilimanjaro Challenge

Appeal ambassador Jacha Potgieter will be taking on the challenge of climbing Kilimanjaro to raise money and awareness for the Appeal

Interview with Sue Sheward MBE

Our charity’s founder and chairlady talks to Nicholas Daines about why she set up Orangutan Appeal UK and how far it has come since her first project in 2001


The Orangutan Appeal UK is a registered charity based in the south of England, dedicated to the rehabilitation and preservation of orangutans and the conservation of their habitat.

The Appeal strives to protect remaining wild populations of orangutans by providing support and funding for projects across Malaysian and Indonesian Borneo; and by raising awareness of the plight of this great ape across the globe. The Appeal is also authorised to work on behalf of the famous Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre!
