Learn more about Monita through regular email updates

When you adopt Monita, you instantly become an involved part of her journey back to the wild. As Monita’s adopter, you will receive dedicated quarterly updates and photographs – as well as a yearly unique video – detailing her individual story, struggles, and triumphs.

With your support, she can continue to learn how to survive on her own so she may one day be released back into the wild.

Monita Overcomes Obstacles

Monita is no longer bothered by the presence of newcomers; she seems completely unaffected by their presence and remains absorbed in her treetop activities. Monita often refuses to spend time on the forest floor, even when the surrogate mothers tempt her with her favourite treats – bananas and corn. At the mere mention or sight of these lovely treats, Monita will race down to grab them, then retreat to her upper world with her hands and mouth full…

Your Adoption Impact

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.

Healthcare

Your monthly gift will ensure we can maintain the lifesaving care we provide, contributing to vet checks and healthcare, as well as regular vitamins and enrichment activities.

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.
