ORANGUTAN CARING SCHOLARSHIPS

Sumatra, Indonesia

Established in 2006, the Orangutan Caring Scholarship awards talented and disadvantaged Indonesian students with tuition funding to complete postgraduate programs in Forestry and Biology. Through the program, recipients develop an understanding of the plight of the orangutan, and graduate as an advocate of orangutan conservation. TOP currently fully funds two such scholarships every year.

Fundraising $1,500 will support further scholarships for Indonesian students.

Pledge for our primates and secure hope for their future!

We would like you to come to understand that the habitat of the orangutan, the tropical rain forest, is vital to not only orangutans but to other wildlife and to all of us on this planet. Rainforests and related ecosystems provide important services from climate moderation, to water quality and erosion control, to storehouses of genetic, species and ecological biodiversity. Rainforests need to be sustainably managed to maintain these services. We want to inform citizens in our own communities of this connection and continue to enlighten local people in areas near orangutan habitat.
