I’ve just read this article on the orangutan hospital in Malaysia. It is a must-read. You’ll surely agree with me that the cuteness factor of the baby orangutans is way off the charts here! There are various projects in Malaysia and Indonesia to save these endangered primates and you can help too. For instance, various travel volunteer agencies offer packages to visit and participate in some of these projects. I’ve listed several possibilities below:
- Travellers Worldwide volunteer projects: Sepilok Orangutan Conservation
- Responsibletourism: Orangutan and Tribes
- The Great Orangutan project
Or, you can donate to an orangutan rehabilitation charity or even adopt an orangutan.
See Sepilok Orangutan Appeal UK or Borneo Orangutan Survival UK.
