#LoveTheLeuser! – Sumatran Orangutan Conservation Programme

Vision:

Our vision is to prevent the extinction of the Sumatran orangutan. We endeavor to contribute to the long-term protection of wild Sumatran orangutan populations and safeguard their habitat.

Mission:

The Sumatran Orangutan Conservation Programme is endeavoring to conserve viable wild populations of the Critically Endangered Sumatran orangutan (Pongo abelii). We do this by habitat protection, rehabilitation and reintroduction of ex-captive orangutans to the wild, education, survey work and scientific research. 

Aims:

  • To ensure all remaining viable wild Sumatran orangutan populations and their habitat are fully protected and safe from destruction
  • To establish new viable populations of the species in the wild via reintroduction of confiscated illegal pets, serving as a safety net for the original wild population.
  • To increase knowledge of wild orangutan distribution, status, threats, behaviour and ecology.
  • To change perceptions among Indonesian citizens in terms of animal welfare, understanding of sustainable development, and natural resource management.
