How to Help

Check out these impactful things you can do to help save the orangutans of Gunung Palung National Park!

  • Learn more about orangutans, their ecology, and the conservation threats they face and encourage others to do the same.
  • Like us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter and Instagram, and subscribe to our newsletter to get the latest news from Gunung Palung, then share our updates with your friends!
  • Engage with orangutan, great ape, and biodiversity conservation groups on social media.
  • Visit your local zoo or wildlife park to see these amazing red apes in action–what do you observe about their behavior? Take photos and tag us in Social Media! #savegporangutans
  • Be conscious of the products you buy. Many common foods and other products contain palm oil, and by avoiding these items you can send a message to major manufacturers that consumers care about habitat destruction. This guide from the Orangutan Conservancy is a good summary of things to watch out for.
  • Check out campaigns and shop from our partners that support GPOCP (such as Slothgrip with their new charity¬†Leaf Patches)
