Nowhere left to climb!!

After successfully controlling the fire threat to Samboja Lestari where we estimate 200 hectares was lost, BOS CEO Jamartin Sihite and his team are facing fresh danger at the home of Cinta, Jumbo, Nita, Miko, Ruthie and Nody and hundreds more Orangutans.

We are extremely grateful to every one who has given so far. We need to do what we can from here to aid Jamartin and his team, so please give what you can today and help our fight to protect them.

From Jamartin Sihite, BOS CEO: "Now fire close to BOSF orangutan rehab centre in Nyaru Menteng, Central Kalimantan. 800 metres from our cages and 400 metres from forest school. We are tired but we can not stop fighting to save our orangutans [SIC]. We need your help."
