No place like home

Release operations will not stop here.  In the end of March 2012, BOS Foundation plans to release 12 more orangutans and it will be done continuously. There are still more than 600 individual orangutans at the Central Kalimantan Orangutan Reintroduction Project at Nyaru Menteng who are waiting to be released back to their natural habitat.

“All of the healthy and able orangutans in rehabilitation centers should be returned to their natural habitat at the latest by 2015.  After the release of these 4 orangutans, in the end of March BOS Foundation will release 12 more orangutans. This should be supported with the availability of a viable forest.” Dr. Jamartin Sihite, Director of the BOS Foundation said.

For the latest updates on the release you can follow the Going back to the Forest blog. This is updated daily directly from Indonesia and the team on the ground.

How Can You Help

Adopt an Orangutan

Adopt an Orangutan

Orangutans are endangered and at risk of extinction. Habitat destruction results in hundreds of orphaned orangutans, who rely on our care 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.
