The Centre for Orangutan Protection was founded in 2007, and works to counter crimes that threaten orangutan and their natural habitats. As part of this mandate, we investigate, document, expose, and if necessary, readily confront any persons or groups who threaten to disrupt the lives of orangutan or local communities living nearby.
COP are at the forefront of saving critically endangered wild animals, and strive to create a second chance for orangutan to thrive, whether this be in their natural environments or in captivity.
COP operates several rapid-response teams that work to rehabilitate orangutan into Labanan, East Kalimantan. We work wherever orangutan are in need of assistance, whether this be from the cruelties of the illegal animal trade, circus performances, or low-standard zoos.
