Borneo Orangutan Survival Foundation

The Borneo Orangutan Survival Foundation (BOS) is a not-for-profit foundation supported by thirteen sister organizations around the world. (Until the recent name change, BOS was also known as the Balikpapan Orangutan Survival Foundation).

BOS works under an official agreement with the Indonesian Ministry of Forestry for the conservation of orangutans and their ecosystem by involving and educating the local people.

BOS is presently running the world's largest primate conservation project and employs more than 200 permanent staff. BOS' interests cover biodiversity issues (flora and fauna), forest rehabilitation, forest inventory and monitoring (through its company PT SarVision Indonesia), agroforestry (to improve local peoples' welfare and education), as well as working with orangutans and other protected wildlife.
