The following table briefly describes each state's laws concerning great apes. The great ape family generally includes bonobos, chimpanzees, gorillas, and orangutans. Below the short description of each state's laws on possession of great apes are links to discussions on the laws. Some states include both an overview of the laws and detailed legal discussions. This is because those states have more complex laws that need both an overview and longer analysis. Other states simply link to the detailed legal discussion. These discussion were written between 2011 and 2013.
Summary: Washington D.C. does not have any statutes or regulations that specifically address Great Apes. Instead, the District has a blanket ban on all animals that are not specifically exempt by statute. Because they are not exempt from the ban, it is illegal to import, possess, and sell gorillas, chimpanzees, bonobos, orangutans, and gibbons within the municipality.
Summary: In Hawaii, gorillas, chimpanzees, bonobos, orangutans, and gibbons are heavily regulated because of their dual status as both endangered/threatened species and restricted animals.
Summary: In Kansas, it is legal for anyone to import, possess, buy, and sell any species of ape for any purpose. There are no state permit or registration requirements for gorillas, chimpanzees, bonobos, orangutans, or gibbons; however, those species are protected under the Federal Endangered Species Act, and activities involving those animals may require federal permits.
For just 50 cents a day, you can give these orangutans a future. By choosing to become an adoptive parent of an orangutan you will be helping to ensure that he or she will have everything they need until they can be safely released back into the forest by our partners BOS, IAR & SOCP. If they can't be released, you will be helping cover the costs of their care in a sanctuary. The funds for Gracia go toward our reforestation program with BNF.
Orangutan adoptions are US $15 per month (when made in 12 monthly payments for a total of USD $180) or USD $150 per year (when paid up front). Learn more about the adoption process.Please Note: ADOPTIONS ARE VIRTUAL! The orangutans stay at the care centers in Borneo & Sumatra!
A final note: Orangutans are perfect... but our website is not! It's difficult to make sure it works flawlessly on all browsers and devices. If you try to adopt but our website doesn't work, please contact us and we'll be happy to help you set up your adoption! Please don't let technology get between you and your adopted orangutan!

Luna was the youngest of the group and the smallest of the bunch. With her fluffy hair, her big brown eyes, and her Mona Lisa smile, she stole everyone's hearts. Our little angel disappeared in early April 2011 under suspicious circumstances, causing us to question the very notion of what it means to rescue an orangutan. Funds from Luna's 'in memoriam' adoption will go toward the care of her friends at the Ketapang Orangutan Center, which is professionally managed by the International Animal Rescue Indonesia Foundation (YIARI). Learn more about Luna's suspicious disappearance here.
Nadya was a beautiful little orangutan who was rescued in June 2014 when she was around 2 years old. She was taken to Sumatran Orangutan Conservation Programme (SOCP) center where she received much tender loving care. Over four years Nadya developed from a timid baby into a confident young lady. In April 2018 Nadya was transferred to the SOCP Jantho Orangutan Reintroduction Center for advanced skills training. Nadya fell ill and returned to the SOCP Quarantine and Rehabilitation Centre for intensive care. The little sweetheart passed away on July 17th, 2018 due to bronchopneumonia and malaria. Nest in peace, dear one.
Oscarina was rescued by International Animal Rescue Indonesia (YIARI) in July 2011 when she was a baby. This special little girl joined the Orangutan Outreach adoption program in 2012. She was supported and loved by her adoptive parents and adored by all those who followed her progress. During her rehabilitation Oscarina grew and developed, made orangutan friends, and learned forest survival skills. She lived on various pre-release islands at the YIARI center where she perfected her arboreal skills. Oscarina was successfully released back to freedom in the forest in November 2020. She was released in Bukit Baka Bukit Raya National Park close to where her best friend Monti was released at the beginning of 2020. We are so proud of this "graduate" from our adoption program.
After realizing the potential of orangutans in zoos to contribute toward wild orangutan conservation, we decided in 2008 to see if our orangutans were interested. The orangutans choose whether or not they want to paint. The first painting sessions resulted in a few simple dots of paint on paper, and a lot of broken paint brushes. By giving small treats (positive reinforcing) each time the orangutan dipped their brush into the paint, and each time they touched brush to the paper, they quickly caught on. Within a few weeks, four adult orangutans were creating unique pieces of art!
Sumatran orangutan Baka was born June 15, 1990. If red is a choice on the color palette, Baka almost always chooses to paint with red before any other color. When learning how to paint, Baka was the most free-spirited artist. He alternated between holding the brush with his hand and mouth, and has even held the brush with his foot! Baka broke more paint brushes than any of the other artists in the early stages of his painting career.
Bornean orangutan Tujoh was born April 30, 1994. He has a very recognizable painting style characterized by squiggly strokes that make his paintings look like tornados. He paints at the door just like the rest of the orangutan artists, but will also take his painting to the middle of his habitat to paint by himself. When learning to paint, Tujoh always got a LOT of paint on the brush and methodically wiped off the excess paint inside of his exhibit before he touched the brush to the paper. Tujoh would use double (or triple) the amount of paint than the other orangutans used for a painting, and often accidentally splattered his trainer.
Only 1 out of 6 orphans are lucky enough to be rescued - over 1,000 orphaned orangutans are living in rescue and rehabilitation centres. Care of these infants is costly and requires 24hr staff, veterinary, and nurse care to ensure they are in a healthy condition and have the best chance of returning to life in the wild.
We are in regular contact with the staff at the centres and our team visits regularly to get updates on the orphaned infants to see how they are progressing. For a small monthly sum you can make a real difference and help these orphaned orangutans survive. 59ce067264
