A survey of visitors to Semenggoh Wildlife Sanctuary revealed that 60%_ would be willing to pay for the conservation of wild orang-utans, with two grouping being apparent among the visitors, those concerned about wild orang-utan conservation and those more interested in seeing the animals in captivity. Australians without children and members of a conservation organisation were the most likely to be willing to pay (91% probability) while non-Australians with children and not members of a conservation organisation were least willing (23%). These results can be used both in targeting requests for assistance with conservation funding and m education campaigns.
