Orangutan Rescue is dedicated to the protection of orangutans in their natural habitat.
Orangutans derive their name from the Malaysian and Indonesian words orang, meaning person and hutan, meaning forest. The name orangutan means “man of the forest” in the Malay language. There are two species of orangutan, the Bornean orangutan and the Sumatran orangutan. Both species are highly adapted to an arboreal way of life and rely on forests to provide them with food and shelter. As a result, habitat loss has had a dramatic impact on orangutan populations.

Almost every session has been well attended with several completely sold out. There was not a spare seat in Melbourne and people were turned away. (Click on PIC)
