You may already know Dr. Citrakasih Nente, called Citra by everyone, as the head of care and reintroduction in our Sumatran Orangutan Conservation Programme. Recently, an interview with her and our partner «Orangutan Coffee» was published and we would like to share it also with you.
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.
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.
