Adoptions

When you adopt an orangutan, you not only make their journey back to the wild possible – you become an integral part of that journey and are included in achievements, milestones, and adventures!

A big part of the BOS Foundation’s adoption program is that all of our funds go to one on-the-ground organization that facilitates the rescue, rehabilitation, and release of orangutans.

Adoptions go further

BOS Foundation is the largest orangutan conservation centre in the world

Over 400 orphaned orangutans reside at our Rehabilitation Centre

Orphaned orangutans can take up to ten years to be taught the skills they need to survive in the wild

On the way to Jungle School

Three orangutans are on their way to a day’s life saving education. Infant orangutans require learning jungle skills in order to survive in the wild which can take around 8-9 years.

Food

Our centres provide an average of 22 types of fruits and vegetables. Orangutans take an average of 10 years to rehabilitate, your support can help feed them plenty of essential fruits.

Education

Orphaned orangutans are cared for by surrogate mothers who teach them the skills they need to survive in the rainforest, including using twigs to forage for food and traversing the treetops.

Adoption FAQ

How long will my adoption pack take to arrive?

If you made a payment using BACs (Bank-to-bank transfer) then there is a legal “cooling off period” between the payment being made and the payment being received. In that time, we will not receive the details of your adoption and, therefore, cannot fulfil your adoption pack needs. This can take up to 10 working days. If you would like to receive your adoption pack quicker, you can send us an email at hello@bos-uk.org with your details.

Typically, for deliveries within the UK your pack will be delivered within 3-5 working days but this can be up to 7 working days.

For deliveries to Europe, please allow up to 21 working days. Please note, deliveries outside the UK may be obligated to pay a customs duty charge which BOS UK do not control. We also offer a personalized, digital certificate for anybody who does not want to pay this fee.

If your adoption pack has not arrived within the maximum suggested timeframe, please contact us at hello@bos-uk.org and we will follow this up for you.

Can I gift an orangutan adoption to someone else?
Absolutely! Our orangutan adoption program makes for a thoughtful and eco-friendly gift. During the adoption process, you can provide the recipient's information, and they will receive all the benefits of the adoption, including quarterly updates and communications.
Why should I choose BOS UK over other charities?

With our adoption program, you can feel connected to a specific orangutan, following their rehabilitation progress and hopeful release. Your money is going directly towards helping the orangutans in our care and our specific rehabilitation facilities (or Sanctuary Care for Kopral and friends) like Samboja Lestari or Nyaru Menteng.

What will my monthly donation be used for?
Your monthly donation supports various elements of our work, including orangutan rehabilitation needs, forest school lessons, proper nutrition, medical care, enrichment activities, and a safe habitat for not only your adopted orangutan, but all those going through the same process.
