Why Adopt

Adopt a monkey: Koyah

Young Orangutan

Name: Koyah (named after a river which has its headwaters in the Ulu Segama Forest Reserve)

Species: Orang-utan

About Koyah: Koyah lives in the northern part of Ulu Segama Forest Reserve in eastern Sabah, Borneo. Koyah is a baby orang-utan estimated to be about 9 months old and her mother Ibu (meaning mother in Malay) still cares for Koyah. She is one of less than 63,000 orang-utans estimated to survive in the wild today.

About orang-utans: Orang-utans are now found only on the islands of Borneo and Sumatra. Habitat destruction and fragmentation – caused by commercial logging and clearance for oil palm plantations and agriculture – are by far the greatest threats that these amazing creatures face. If the current rate of deforestation continues, Borneo could lose most of its lowland forests in less than ten years.

From just £3.00 a month you can adopt a monkey, helping WWF to safeguard the future of wild orang-utans, and tackle some of the biggest conservation challenges that we face today. Sponsor a monkey today and make a difference.
