What is Earth 4 Orangutans?

E4O is the development of a vital island orangutan sanctuary in Northern Sumatra, Indonesia for rescued orangutans who for reasons of ill health or injury due to human impact require long-term care and can never be released into the wild. The sanctuary will allow each individual an enriching life within a natural habitat setting. The sanctuary will also become a crucial conservation education resource aimed at changing attitudes towards wildlife and the environment within the region, utilizing the orangutans as the forefront of conservation education.

The Residents
