As a part of an annual exchange with the SOCP staff on Sumatra, our fundraising officer Dominique Bärtschi visited our research station in Sikundur a few weeks ago.
In the past weeks, there were two papers published in which our orangutan conservation programme took part in.
Orangutan «Hope» was brought to our rescue and rehabilitation centre with 74 air pellets in her body.
Every year in January, it is time for a medical routine examination: The orangutan males «Leuser» and «Fahzren» underwent their check.
Unfortunately, not always is good fortune with the orangutans on our station. Sometimes, fate is double hard on them: This is the sad story of the female orangutan “Seroja”.
In the middle of November, four orangutans were relocated from the SOCP’s rescue and rehabilitation station to Jantho, where they will be released back into the wild.
What would we be without our partners? As a foundation, we rely on the valuable cooperation with our partners
In partnership with the Clinic for Zoo Animals, Exotic Pets and Wildlife of the university of Zurich, we are enabling indonesian veterinary students to spend a semester with us.
In a spectacular operation, the Sumatra-Orangutan-Conservation-Programme SOCP saved a wild orangutan. The fact, that this was necessary, points out severe problems.
For over a year now, our Sumatran Orangutan Conservation Programme SOCP has been building the Orangutan Haven, a space for orangutans that are not capable of surviving in the wild.
