WHAT IS INTERNATIONAL ORANGUTAN DAY?
International Orangutan Day (IOD) is an international event that was created to promote the conservation of critically endangered orangutans and to encourage the protection of their habitat.
Also... girls and boys
We have seven deserving orangutans currently in our adoption program who need your help to get through Forest School or thrive on an island, and they each have a unique story to tell – so we’re highlighting them all! Learn more about each orangutan on their featured days.
