Sumatran Orangutans

Welcome! You’re about to embark on a one-of-a-kind virtual tour of one of the most remote, and threatened, habitats on Earth: the home of the critically endangered Sumatran Orangutan. Join us as we visit a jungle feeding platform where ecotourists encounter wild Orangutans, get a first-hand look at the Tripa peat swamps where palm oil plantations are rapidly replacing Orangutan habitat, and get a tour of the off-limits-to-the-public SOCP quarantine facility where you’ll meet some apes with incredible stories of survival.

Click on one of the pinned locations below to begin your virtual ecotour!



We hope that your virtual ecotour inspires you to take action and get involved – the people working to save endangered species and habitats need all the help they can get. Click on these links to find out what YOU can do:

– Visit the Sumatran Orangutan Conservation Programme (SOCP) at their web page or on facebook.
