WWF has been working on orang-utan conservation since the 1970s, in partnership with both international and local groups including research institutions, universities, government institutions and local communities. This work is guided by a specific Species Action Plan for orang-utans, and includes:
Conserving orang-utan habitat: We are working in both Borneo and Sumatra to secure well-managed protected areas and wider forest landscapes connected by corridors.
Promoting sustainable forestry and agriculture: Our work on sustainable production of commodities including forest products and palm oil also contributes towards the protection and conservation of major orang-utan habitats on the islands, as well as to mitigating human-orangutan conflict.(
Halting the pet trade. We work with TRAFFIC (the wildlife trade monitoring network) to help governments enforce restrictions on the trade in live animals and orang-utan products. We also help to rescue orang-utans from traders. Many are taken to refuges where they can recover and be rehabilitated, and are eventually released back into the wild.
Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll be happy to help you out.
