La mission de cette organisation est de protéger les orang-outans dans leur habitat naturel et de réhabiliter les sujets orphelins ou malades.
Orangutan Outreach’s mission is to protect orangutans in their native habitat while providing care for orphaned and displaced orangutans until they can be returned to their natural environment. We seek to raise and promote public awareness of orangutan conservation issues by collaborating with partner organizations around the world.
Richard Zimmerman founded Orangutan Outreach in 2007 with two primary goals: 1) to bring attention to the crisis facing orangutans in the wild and 2) to raise funds for orangutan conservation projects in Borneo. Orangutan Outreach works closely with organizations including International Animal Rescue (IAR), the Borneo Orangutan Survival Foundation (BOS), the Center for Orangutan Protection (COP) and the Jakarta Animal Aid Network (JAAN).
Thanks to steady growth in its online social networks, Orangutan Outreach has been able to successfully build a global grassroots movement and help foster awareness of the plight of orangutans among people from every walk of life. By offering people the chance to get involved and do their part to help protect orangutans, Orangutan Outreach has brought renewed hope that together we can save the red apes.
