Borneo Orangutan Survival Australia (BOSA) is a non-profit organisation raising funds for rescued orangutans since 2001.
Orangutans are an endangered species, with an estimated 50,000 left in the wild. The greatest threat to their survival is the extensive destruction of the rainforest. Some experts say about 6,000 orangutans are disappearing every year and without our collective help orangutans could be extinct in the wild within our lifetime.
We work to save the orangutan by rescuing and rehabilitating them, with an ultimate goal of releasing them back to the forest where they will be safe from human development, poaching and farming. Since February 2012 we have released over 325 orangutans back into the wild.
With your support, you're helping to:
rescue, rehabilitate and release orangutans
provide public awareness and educational programs
protect existing rainforest habitat, and
support and educate the people who depend on forests to earn their living.
Being totally dependent on donations and support from wonderful Australians like you means we can directly help critically endangered orangutans in Indonesia.
We have a deductible gift recipient (DGR) status for donations over $2, which are tax deductible for Australian taxpayers.
Thank you for helping save orangutans.
