The centre opened as the first official orangutan rehabilitation project for rescued orphaned baby orangutans from logging sites, plantations, illegal hunting or kept as pets. The orphaned orangutans are trained to survive again in the wild and are released as soon as they are ready.

Especially, you can adopt an orangutan while visiting the center starting with a contribution of RM200 (USD$70) per year. You can sponsor a small amount on a weekly, monthly or yearly basis to help support the life-changing restoration of these beautiful creatures.
