Zoo Atlanta joins a Mother’s Day campaign to celebrate one of the animal kingdom’s closest and most enduring bonds: the relationship between orangutan mothers and their offspring. Join members of our Primate Team in fun family activities educating guests on conservation challenges facing wild orangutans. 

Orangutans are found only on the islands of Borneo and Sumatra. Sumatran orangutans are among the most critically endangered primates in the world, and without targeted conservation efforts, they’re likely to be the first great ape that could go extinct within our lifetimes. Support orangutan mothers in the Zoo and in the wild on Mother’s Day – learn more about these amazing apes, and find out how you can help make an impact on their future.
