be part of a global movement to protect precious orangutan habitat

A huge thank you to everyone who took part in The Rainforest Run 2019! 

Over 700 people around the world completed 5k on the 29th September and raised enough to plant more than 3,000 trees in areas of destroyed Indonesian rainforest!

If you weren't able to take part this year but would like to show your support, please consider making a donation.

Thank you so much and we can't wait to do it all again next year!






trees planted


The Indonesian rainforest is vanishing before our eyes, with over two million acres lost every single year.


Orangutans are now on the brink of extinction.

Every single day they are forced out of their forest homes and left to starve and die.



We are committed to building a future for every living being that depends on the rainforest for survival. And that means all of us! The rainforests are the lungs of the planet. Without them, none of us stands a chance of survival. 

We are working to reforest and protect areas of destroyed rainforest as well as providing alternative livelihoods to local people engaging in deforestation activities. So far we have reforested an area the size of 30 football pitches.

We urgently need to raise the funds to continue this important work!

what you can do

By taking part in The Rainforest Run you can help us reforest and protect precious habitats.

All funds raised will enable us to build a future for Critically Endangered orangutans.

No matter where you are in the world, whether you will be walking or running, taking part on your own or with friends, you have the power to make a real and lasting difference.

Limited edition merchandise

Rescue and rehab

Our dedicated team rescues and rehabilitates baby orangutans that have been sold as pets, as well as adults that have spent years in captivity, chained or locked up in tiny cages.​


Our Orangutan Protection Unit comes to the aid of wild orangutans left stranded when their forest home is destroyed and relocates them into safe areas of protected forest.​
