RELEASE!


Since the summer of 2012 the team at the Borneo Orangutan Survival Foundation (BOSF) has been accomplishing something truly astonishing. They've released hundreds of rehabilitated orangutans into a safe, pristine forest — back to where they belong! There are still more than 400 orangutans being cared for by the BOS Foundation, so the releases will be ongoing for many years to come!

Check out the most recent release video and photos of the orangutans!

Thanks to your generous support, Orangutan Outreach has been able to make a valuable contribution to the BOSF Orangutan Release Program. We have provided the post-release monitoring team with funding and equipment such as tracking implants and radio tracking receivers. Read more. But this is only the beginning! The orangutans need YOU! Your donation, large or small, can make a HUGE difference! YOU can help send the orangutans back home. Please make a contribution to our BOS Foundation Orangutan Release Fund.
