Sumatran orangutans are critically endangered and without urgent action could be the first Great Ape species to become extinct. SOS is dedicated to turning this situation around. We do this by:


Supporting grassroots projects which empower local people to become guardians of the rainforests

Restoring damaged orangutan habitat through tree planting programmes.  

Campaigning on issues threatening the survival of orangutans in the wild.

Raising awareness about the importance of protecting orangutans and their rainforest home.


We are a small charity, with a big impact. We are really proud of the results our projects and campaigns are having – together with our partner organization in Sumatra, we have planted over a million trees to restore damaged orangutan habitat, and we are supporting people living next to these precious areas to work towards a sustainable future for their forests.


We are currently seeking an individual with specific and substantial expertise in campaigning, and would like to hear from others with well-established skills and experience who feel they would be able to contribute to and guide the strategic development of the charity.


SOS trustees meet quarterly inOxford, and are expected to be available for regular consultation and input on a range of issues between meetings. Trustees operate in a voluntary capacity, but SOS will cover all reasonable expenses incurred while exercising your responsibilities.  Details of trustee responsibilities can be found on the UK Charity Commission website.


If you are interested in becoming a trustee, have an interest in supporting conservation in Indonesia and, importantly, are able to contribute time to this role, we would be delighted to hear from you.


Please contact Helen Buckland, Director, for an informal discussion, on Tel. (01865) 403341, or email: Helen@orangutans-sos.org, and send CVs and expressions of interest by email, by 5th January 2015. Early applications are encouraged.


SOS is a Registered Charity in England and Wales no. 1085600
(We have recently registered as a CIO, no. 1158711)
