Orangutans are very athletic and fantastic climbers and love to spend their time up in the trees where they can watch over the comings and goings of the hot rainforest. Unlike other apes, they are happy to spend time alone, and only ever come into contact with others during mating season. Completely vegetarian, these amazing creatures make nests in trees as they very rarely venture onto the rainforest floor.

Our orangutan says…
I may be famous for monkeying around in trees, but in the last 10 years nearly half of my fellow orangutan friends have disappeared from the planet. People keep cutting down the areas where I live slowly leaving me with nowhere to call home. Please adopt me today and help WWF to protect my precious rainforests and teach our human neighbours that we depend on the trees to survive. Although it’s our home, we can still share it together.
