The Orangutan Haven is a unique project that combines nature conservation and sustainable development in an innovative way. Recently, we also introduced teaching aids
What do we mean when we say that community development projects are extremely important for our work to conserve the rainforest and orangutans in Sumatra?
One rescue, one admission to the rescue and rehabilitation station, several transports to the reintroduction station and two releases: June was a busy month for the SOCP in Sumatra.
Have you ever wondered how the number of wild orangutans is determined?
The Jantho Ranger Federation (JRF) is a partnership between the SOCP, BKSDA Aceh (local government conservation authorities) and local Community Rangers.
Finally, the time has come: The first orangutans can be transported from the rescue and rehabilitation center of our orangutan conservation program back to the reintroduction stations.
After years of planning and building, the Orangutan Haven on Sumatra is finally ready for the orangutans to move in!
She is not even two years old and already had to go through (too) much. Young Siska is a female orangutan.
After months of waiting, the time finally came just before Christmas: Nine orangutans were returned from Malaysia to Sumatra to be cared for at our quarantine and rehabilitation centre.
Past summer there was a sighting of the two orangutans «Edelweiss» and «Eja» in the rainforest of Jantho, the first observation since «Edelweiss» was reintroduced. How beautiful!
