Orangutan Outreach has helped endless efforts here in indonesia to help orangutans, finally a no talk but do-organization who get their facts right. Its about time others started to do so too, before its too late. Femke den Haas, Jakarta Animal Aid Network

Orangutan outreach has provided much needed support and acts with the best intentions to not only support on the ground field work to conserve and save orangutans, but is also an active advocate to ensure the correct information is spread. Watching orangutan outreach grow and provide necessary and critical support to orangutans has meant that we have a good chance to continue to protect, save and ensure steps are put in place to halt this species and it's home from becoming extinct. Without the support from orangutan outreach then we are steps behind in this effort. Keep up the wonderful, inspiring and dedicated work. Jess McKelson RWE

Having known Orangutan Outreach since its inception, I can say without hesitation that this is an organisation led by integrity and passion. The support they have given orangutans has changed the lives of many of these creatures, whether in captive situations or in the wild. Negative reviews here seem to come from disgruntled donors to a questionable initiative that compels schoolchildren and young people to donate to support the promises of a man who has let down the orangutan conservation effort dramatically in recent years. Because Richard Zimmerman who directs Orangutan Outreach did due diligence on this initiative (as have my organisation, Orangutan Land Trust) and found it lacking in transparency, he has spoken out to warn donors to consider this before handing over their money. This so-called "orangutan conservation group" that he has been accused of attacking has a total of 2 orangutans in a zoo setting (having lost one and had 11 others confiscated by the authorities due to negligence). I know of no reputable orangutan conservation organisation that would either work with or endorse this group. Singling out Orangutan Outreach for having the integrity to condemn this group for failure to provide sufficient care to orangutans in their facility is nothing more than a personal attack from misguided people.

I can't speak highly enough of Orangutan Outreach. Founder Richard Zimmerman has the passion and commitment to keep the organization a game changer in the field of orangutan conservation. He does his due diligence and applies the funds his group receives to projects worthy of support. I have watched Orangutan Outreach grow over the years and must say I am both impressed and proud to see how the organization has stayed true to its mission.

Orangutan Outreach work tirelessly to spread awareness about the plight of the orangutan. They have provided significant funding to International Animal Rescue (IAR) which, as a result, has rescued many animals in West Borneo. Supported by Orangutan Outreach and other progressive NGOs around the world IAR has embarked on an ambitious orangutan conservation program. The support has been open and transparent and the commitment unquestionable. A great NGO.
