At Paignton Zoo, we have a group of six Bornean orang-utans. This subspecies is listed as Critically Endangered with only around 100,000 estimated to be left in the wild. Their population has declined by more than 50% over the past 60 years due to the destruction of their habitat for unsustainable palm oil production.
 

How do I adopt an orang-utan?

First choose the adoption package you wish to purchase from the options below and then make your animal selection.

Adoptions apply to the species rather than individual animals. This is because our animals may move to other zoos as part of breeding programmes.
