OURF will offer customized small group (8-12) ecotours with book author Prof. Shawn Thompson and with OURF President Dr. Gary Shapiro in 2014. Both will be great opportunities to experience the wonders of orangutans, other wildlife and the environment in which they live. A portion of the cost of the trip will be a donation to OURF and will be tax-deductible for US tourists.  If you or your organization are interested in setting up a tour, contact OURF at This email address is being protected from spambots.

In a separate tour opportunity, OURF's Indonesian partners (OUREI Indonesia and CPOI-Sumut) are also offering multi-day ecotours to Kalimantan and Sumatra. These tours are geared towards people living in Indonesia, Malaysia and Singapore who would like to visit orangutans and other wildlife in the forest.

OUREI Indonesia (in Jakarta) will be working with a local tour operator to provide tours to Tanjung Puting National Park in Central Kalimantan while CPOI-Sumut (in Medan) will be partnering with a local tour company to offer tours to Gunung Leuser National Park in North Sumatra.
