Taymur arrived at our Nyaru Menteng sanctuary at the age of two, in September 2017.
As a baby, he was illegally smuggled to Kuwait and kept as a pet. Local authorities discovered him, and the Indonesian Embassy, together with the Kuwait Zoo, launched an operation to return him to Borneo. After two months of planning and preparation, BOS Foundation sent one of their most experienced veterinarians to Kuwait to accompany Taymur on his 30-hour-long journey back home.
Today, Taymur is a confident male orangutan who loves to explore and learn all the important skills he needs for his final journey back to the wild. Taymur is one of the stars on the awarded documentary series “Orangutan Jungle School” on Stan.
