BOS Canada is an independent, registered Canadian charity (# 86282 4786 RR0001) founded to support orangutan conservation and to raise awareness of the serious threats to orangutan survival. We are dedicated to protecting wild and rehabilitant orangutans and their native habitat. Activities in Canada focus on education and fundraising.
The funds we raise primarily support orangutan protection in the field, in Indonesia and Malaysia, e.g., rescuing displaced wild orangutans, rehabilitating ex-captives to forest life, surveying and protecting existing orangutan populations and habitat, and conservation education. We operate entirely by dedicated volunteers, minimize administrative costs and ensure that the funds we raise reach the projects we support in the field.
