Two year old Taymur arrived at Nyaru Menteng in October, 2017 after a very long journey.
Taymur was illegally smuggled to Kuwait and kept as a pet. After being discovered by local authorities, the Indonesian Embassy and the Kuwait Zoo launched an operation to return Taymur to his country. After two months of planning and preparation, BOS Foundation sent one of their most experienced veterinarians to Kuwait to accompany Taymur back to Borneo. The 30 hour journey was long but he finally returned home.
Taymur was placed in a quarantine period before joining the other young orphans in the Nursery Small Group to begin his life at Nyaru Menteng Sanctuary. Taymur spent his first day learning to climb which he picked up very quickly. He has a long journey ahead, but slowly he is learning new skills each day and making friends. Adopting Taymur gives him the best chance of rehabilitation and future release back to the jungle.
Taymur is one of the stars on the new documentary series “Orangutan Jungle School” available on Stan.
