On the 29th of June, three very young orangutans were brought into the Rescue and Rehabilitation Station of our Orangutan Conservation Programme.
Palm-oil plantations are most often the reason for deforestation of valuable rainforests in Indonesia. On Sumatra, the Leuser ecosystem is particularly affected.
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.
Environmental education is an important basis for nature protection. Therefore, the foundation PanEco supports three environmental education centres in Indonesia.
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”.
At the end of this year we have some important intern news: The new leadership of the foundation will start into the year 2019.
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.
