Imagine being brutally taken from your home, having a rope tightly wrapped around your neck; kept in a squalid, small cage and living a life in fear without any hope.
In 2004 BOSF (BOS Foundation Indonesia) confiscated Yayang - a young, seven year old, female orangutan from her captor where she was illegally kept. Unlike many others Yayang survived and was returned to good health. In 2009, Yayang gave birth to her first child, Sayang. Today, Yayang and her daughter are ready to go back but we need your help.We have encountered one last unexpected challenge
. DNA testing- the final check in the release programme- recently confirmed that unlike other orangutans of Central Kalimantan, Yayang and Sayang are a sub-species inhabiting the eastern part of Kalimantan. To preserve the integrity of sub-species, Yayang and Sayang must be released back into their natural area. Sadly, the cost of freedom for Yayang and Sayang is now much higher than we anticipated.
The cost of returning the pair (and their three friends) to the wild is $50,000 and your tax deductible donation
