On balance 2014 was a good year for the Orangutans in our care. We released 162 Orangutans but still have over 700 in our care. We are still receiving new arrivals, all with their own tragic stories. Our team continues to care for them and give them the very best opportunities possible.
2014 also brought its challenges. Post release monitoring is a very difficult task and we have had our work cut out for us keeping in constant contact with all the Orangutans we have released. More on this here
. In addition we had a suspected viral outbreak at one of our care centres. Luckily we have many dedicated support networks around the world that are helping us solve these issues. Once again a huge thanks for your support
We have a new release programme for 2015 in planning now and will post details here as soon as they are finalised.
Without your assistance and interest the Orangutans would be helpless victims to the ongoing threats to their survival and welfare.
With thanks, Tony Gilding, BOS Australia President
