Big rescue and release operations
underway by BOS Indonesia, led by Dr Jamartin Sihite
Loss of habitat and hunting continue to pose a major threat to the survival of orangutans in Indonesia. Just recently, a joint rescue team from Central Kalimantan BKSDA and BOS Foundation programs succeeded in rescuing and translocating wild orangutans to a safer forest area within the Mawas Conservation Area.
However, some of these orangutans were found badly injured or already dead.
This rescue and translocation mission is the second operation conducted by the BOS Foundation and Central Kalimantan BKSDA in the last 2 months. The same joint team launched a similar 10 day rescue mission (27 November to 7 December 2015) in the same area and managed to rescue and translocate 39 wild orangutans
We need your support
to preserve the orangutans and their habitat.
