Thousands of wild orangutans are lost every year – they are victims of the destruction of their rainforest home. This could mean the extinction of one of the world’s four species of great apes – one of our most intelligent and peaceful relatives.
Save the Orangutan works to save the endangered orangutan and its rainforest habitat. The project supports the rescue and translocation of wild orangutans whose forest habitat has been destroyed and the rehabilitation of orphaned orangutans who — without help — would die or be sold into the illegal pet trade.
The goal is that as many orangutans as possible can be released back into the wild, where they belong. Danish conservationist Lone Dröscher Nielsen's work to save orangutans on Borneo has featured in the BBC television series Orangutan Diary, Saving Planet Earth and Animal Planet's documentary series Orangutan Island. Lone Dröscher Nielsen moved from Borneo to Wales in 2010 and now shares her life between the projects on Borneo and being the Senior Expert Advisor of Save the Orangutan.
