Orangutan Foundation International has volunteer opportunities available for active individuals who are willing to get their hands dirty and help save one of the earth's most bio-diverse island in the world!

OFI has several missions:

  1. To promote awareness of orangutans as endangered species
  2. To actively protect and help conserve wild orangutans and their tropical rainforest habitat
  3. To rescue and care for ex-captive orangutans, rehabilitating and releasing them to secure and safe sites in the forest
  4. Conduct observational research on orangutans and their ecology

Journey with us to Borneo, the world's oldest rainforest and help build much needed structures! It can be a bridge, an animal enclosure, an infant orangutan jungle gym, or another type of structure to help OFI continue our important work of saving orangutans and their rainforest habitat.
