An update on Kerry

6 December 2008

Sad news from Nyaru Menteng – Kerry has died following a problem that developed with her gastro track. We have some comfort in that we were able to give her so much love and care in the past few months since her rescue but still devastated to have lost her.

In July, we reported on the rescue of Kerry by Centre for Orangutan Protection from the illegal pet trade. Kerry found a new home at the Nyaru Menteng rescue and rehabilitation centre.

To see a short video of Kerry at the centre, click here. This film was made by Jean Kernvoorzitter from Primates helping Primates in the Netherlands

How Can You Help

There are lots of ways you can support orangutans and help ensure the survival of this precious ape.

Adopt an Orangutan

Adopt an Orangutan

Orangutans are endangered and at risk of extinction. Habitat destruction means hundreds of orphan orangutans need to care for every year. You can help by adopting one. Their dedicated ‘nannies’ teach them everything they need to know for when it’s time to release them back to the wild. You can follow their progress through Forest School.
