Developed in partnership with BOS Switzerland with the purpose of teaching children the importance of Borneos Rainforest and the Borneo-Orangutans.
To save the orangutan from extinction PUKACA is donating 0,50 euro of its income derived from this Orangutans Paper Toy to Borneo Orangutan Survival (BOS) Switzerland.
For 15 years, this non-profit organization has aimed to protect orangutans and their habitat — the rainforest of Indonesia. For that purpose, BOS Switzerland supports the programs of BOS Foundation in Borneo, Indonesia. BOS is running the largest primate rescue and rehabilitation program in the world.
Since 1991, BOS has rescued more than 3000 orangutans and, since 2012, released 386 orangutans back into the wild after up to nine years of rehabilitation.
Furthermore, BOS is managing and protecting huge areas of rainforest. Together with volunteers, BOS reforests destroyed areas and engages in community development to generate alternative and sustainable sources of income, as well as to improve local health care and environmental education. Orangutans are a so-called umbrella species. By protecting orangutans in their natural habitat, a whole plethora of other flora and fauna depending on the orangutan are also protected. Protecting their habitat is as important to humans as it is to wildlife.
