Orangutan Outreach is a registered US charity based in New York City. The primary goals of the organization are
1) to bring attention to the crisis facing orangutans in the wild due to deforestation and the spreading of palm oil plantations in their rainforest habitat, and
2) to raise funds for the Nyaru Menteng Orangutan Rescue and Rehabilitation Center, which is run by the Borneo Orangutan Survival (BOS) Foundation and managed by Lone Droscher Nielsen.
Orangutan Outreach also works closely with Willie Smits, creator of the Samboja Lestari reforestation project and Hardi Baktiantoro, Director of the Centre for Orangutan Protection, a grassroots orangutan protection organization based in Jakarta.
Orangutan Outreach has an online orangutan adoption program featuring orphaned orangutans from Nyaru Menteng and Samboja Lestari. The Orangutan Outreach website – http://redapes.org -- serves as a hub for all news content related to orangutans in the wild as well as in zoos and sanctuaries.
