Orangutan Foundation International (OFI) has its headquarters in Los Angeles, California. Founded by Dr. Birute Galdikas, one of three anthropologists to study great apes under the guidance of Dr. Louis Leakey ("Leakey's Angels"), OFI continues to rescue and rehabilitate orangutans, preparing them for release back into protected areas of the Indonesian rain forest. In addition, OFI promotes the preservation of rain forest, an issue that continues to be of interest in various publications such as the New York Times (January 25, 2007), Los Angeles Times" (October 19, 2008), and National Geographic Magazine (November 2008: "Borneo's Moment of Truth.")
