Our Mission & Vision

The Orangutan Project (TOP) is a not-for-profit organisation, supporting orangutan conservation, rainforest protection and reintroduction of orphans in order to save the species from extinction.

TOP is a non-partisan organisation that collaborates with several orangutan conservation projects, as well as providing habitat protection through its own Safeguard project - guard patrols that deter wildlife poaching, illegal logging and land clearing in Borneo and Sumatra.

TOP also provides much needed resources for the day-to-day care needs and the reintroduction of orphaned orangutans.

Operating as an independent orangutan protection organisation, TOP exists to provide technical and financial assistance directly to support conservation projects and orangutan rescue and rehabilitation centres.

Our Vision:

All orangutans live in the wild in secure and viable populations.

Our Mission Statement:

To promote the survival of the Sumatran and Bornean orangutan species in their natural habitat by undertaking genuine, measurable and effective orangutan conservation.
