INTERNATIONAL ANIMAL RESCUE

International Animal Rescue is the last remaining hope for Critically Endangered orangutans in West Borneo.  

Our dedicated team rescues and rehabilitates baby orangutans that have been snatched from their mothers and sold as pets, as well as adults that have spent years in captivity, chained or locked up in tiny cages.​ 

 

Our Orangutan Protection Unit comes to the aid of wild orangutans left stranded when their forest home is destroyed and relocates these vulnerable animals into safe areas of protected forest.​  Any animals that can't fend for themselves are given a permanent home at our rescue centre.

We are committed to protecting the orangutan’s natural habitat and our extensive landscape conservation project involves working to protect forest, encouraging sustainable farming, reforesting areas lost in fires and creating tree corridors that allow orangutans to move freely and safely between protected areas. 

 

Our education and outreach programmes are helping us to inspire and encourage change in local communities.

 

The project is an ambitious one but we are committed to rescuing and rehabilitating as many orangutans as we can and giving them a second chance to live safely in their natural environment.

SEE SOME OF THE LIVES WE'VE CHANGED...

Budi From Captivity to Canopies

Budi was rescued from a life of misery where he was being kept in a tiny chicken cage. His body was swollen and he would cry out in pain whenever he was touched.  It took weeks of round the clock care to save Budi’s life but now he is thriving in forest school and growing more independent each day.
