BORNEO ORANGUTAN SURVIVAL
Borneo Orangutan Survival Australia (BOSA) is a volunteer organisation raising funds for rescued orangutans since 2001.They work to save the orangutan by rescuing and rehabilitating them, with an ultimate goal of releasing them back to the forest where they will be safe from human development, poaching and farming. BOSA are totally dependent on support from adoptions, sales of their merchandise and donations to help save the orangutan and the rainforest. As a volunteer organisation, they ensure a very high percentage of donor dollars getting to where they are most needed – to the orangutans in Indonesia. The orangutan is an endangered species, and there is an estimated 50,000 left in the wild. The greatest threat to their survival is the extensive destruction of the rainforest. Some experts say about 6,000 orangutans are disappearing every year and without our collective help orangutans could be extinct in the wild within our lifetime. By supporting BOSA, you help them to:
- provide public awareness and educational programs
- protect existing rainforest habitat, and
- support and educate the people who depend on forests to earn their living.
