The importance of leaving a legacy gift

Orangutan Conservation

Orangutan conservation is vital for safeguarding biodiversity and maintaining the delicate balance of ecosystems. These intelligent primates play a key role in seed dispersal, contributing to forest regeneration. By protecting orangutans, we also preserve the rich biodiversity of their habitats, ensuring the health of our planet.

Ecosystem Conservation

Revitalizing and safeguarding Borneo’s rainforests is paramount for the well-being of orangutans and diverse native species. Conservation efforts protect habitats, promote biodiversity, and foster ecological balance, ensuring a sustainable future for all inhabitants, while mitigating climate change and preserving the rich tapestry of life.

“We chose to leave a legacy to BOS because of the desperate situation these beautiful animals, so closely related to human beings, find themselves in. BOS does outstanding work in rescuing and rehabilitating orangutans and providing them, and other endangered species, with safe habitats for their ongoing care and eventual return to the wild – a wonderful charity to support!”

Nigel and Penny

“It is a privilege to include BOS as beneficiary in my Will, to support the marvellous work in protecting not only the precious Orangutans but also the conservation of our world as we (man) destroy the environment. We have a duty to protect nature, the rain forests and the creatures who live amongst them. Without Them, there is no Us!!”
