Two months after one of our beautiful,
released, female orangutans, Doren, disappeared, the team at Nyaru Menteng were
delighted to find her by Rungan river near Kanarakan Village, which is more
than 30kms away from where she was last sighted on Bangamat Island.
Doren arrived in Nyaru Menteng as a five year old in
February 2003, after being confiscated from Tanjung Jurung village in the Katingan
Regency. She was released earlier in 2014.
Sinde being found
Doren has been transported back to Nyaru Menteng for further health
Now 15 years old, she is able to adapt in the forest
just like a wild orangutan and equipped with these critical skills, we believe
that she will find her way back to her true home in the forest very soon. Read
