Borneo Orangutan Survival Australia (BOSA) is a predominantly volunteer organisation raising funds for rescued orangutans. It was established in 2001.
We work in Australia to raise funds and awareness of the orangutan situation. Much of our work is to save the orangutan by rescuing and rehabilitating them, with an ultimate goal of releasing them back to the forest where they will be safe from human development, poaching and farming.
BOSA is a sister organisation of Borneo Orangutan Survival Foundation Indonesia (BOSF), a non-profit foundation supported by sister organisations around the world.
BOSF works under an official agreement with the Indonesian Ministry of Forestry for the conservation of Bornean orangutans and their ecosystem that works by involving and educating the local people. They focus on orangutan reintroduction, rescue, release and habitat conservation both in East and Central Kalimantan. Currently BOSF manages the biggest orangutan program in the world and is caring for more than 600 orangutans in East and Central Kalimantan. So far over 410 Orangutans have been returned to the wild. BOSF also manages a peat land conservation area which provides habitat for 3,000 wild orangutans in Central Kalimantan
