Orangutan story

One offspring and four releases

The month of June was a very happy one for our Sumatran Orangutan Conservation Programme. Four young orangutans are ready for freedom and are undergoing final training at the Advanced Forest School in Jantho. Among them is an old acquaintance. And someone else showed up at the Reintroduction Station with a happy surprise after years of absence.

Bye bye Deka!

Since 2016 orangutan Deka was in our care in the rescue and rehabilitation station in Sumatra. A few weeks ago, he came a decisive step closer to a life in freedom. A touching film was made of the transport to the reintroduction station in Jambi.

Without happy end

Currently we care for around 70 orangutans in care at the quarantine and rehabilitation station in Sumatra. Most of them are preparing for a life in the rainforest. Unfortunately, despite our best efforts, we cannot help all of the orangutans. Ocan unfortunately did not survive.
