Perth Zoo is raising funds to help save Sumatran Orangutans.
Did you know Perth Zoo are the only zoo in the world to have bred orangutans for release into the wild? With your support, Perth Zoo can continue this important work and support programs on the ground in Sumatra.
Since 2006 Perth Zoo has supported and partnered with Frankfurt Zoological Society who manage the Bukit Tigapuluh ecosystem and reintroduction program.

Over 160 ex-pet and orphaned orangutans have been released into Bukit Tigapuluh, including two Perth Zoo-born orangutans in 2006 and 2011 a world first for a zoo-born orangutan.
