The Borneo Orangutan Survival’s rescue and rehabilitation program for the disappearing Borneo orangutans is what they describe as ‘the largest re-introduction of the great ape back into the wild’.
In the last three years, 167 rescued orangutans have been released back into their preferred lowland rainforest habitat, and a further 700 orangutans are being rehabilitated for eventual reintroduction back into the wild.
Jacqui Sunderland-Groves is a primatologist and Senior Advisor at the Borneo Orangutan Survival Foundation in Indonesia, and joins Ellen Fanning on RN Breakfast.
