Tackling today’s conservation challenges is no simple task. Come learn about how we do our part – from the rescue of orphaned orangutans from areas of human-wildlife conflict and their rehabilitation journey to working with local communities and conserving tropical Indonesian ecosystems for generations to come.
The BOS Foundation story started in 1991 with the establishment of a modest rehabilitation centre at Wanariset in East Kalimantan in response to the many orangutan lives displaced due to the illegal pet trade. In the decades since, our role has grown immensely. Today, we work together with local populations, the Indonesian government, and the greater global community, to fight extinction and conserve orangutans and their habitats in sites all across Borneo – specifically in the Indonesian provinces of Central and East Kalimantan.
