Doren returns home


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 checks.

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 more here.
