Birds of prey, Orangutan protection, Orangutan story
Hope, a female orangutan, was brought to the SOCP rescue and rehabilitation station with severe injuries. She was able to recover from her physical injuries, but psychologically she is still very vulnerable. In this article we will describe to you the special challenges required to care for traumatised animals.
Orangutan protection
Have you ever wondered what it is like in our SOCP quarantine and rehabilitation centre for orangutans in Sumatra? We have produced a video that takes you on a tour through the centre. You will get an overview of the facility and learn about the daily work of the SOCP team on site. Take the tour with us!
Orangutan protection
On Sumatra, near the large city of Medan, a home for Orangutans has been under construction since 2016. It is intended as a haven for those animals which can no longer be released into the wild, and which can spend their old age in dignity on several islands, close to nature. The Orangutan Haven is a unique environmental education centre that will be opened to the public as soon as possible. Visitors will also be able to experience many examples of sustainable construction techniques.
