Dedicated to preventing the extinction of the critically endangered Sumatran Orangutans, SOS organizes grassroots programs with the intent of protecting the fragile rain forest the Orangutans call home. Some projects by SOS include; restoring endangered habitats, campaigning issues that threaten the Orangutans and raising awareness for the importance of the defense of these remarkable creatures.
