3. To collaborate with Indonesian conservationists in the running of orangutan rehabilitation centers.
4. To fund rescue efforts of orangutans confiscated on palm oil plantations.
5. To fund rescue efforts of orangutans held illegally by private owners, whether commercial or individual, who are in direct violation of CITES.
6. To collaborate with zoos and animal parks in North America to promote awareness of orangutan conservation efforts.
