TAKE ON A SPONSORSHIP – «HOPE» IS WAITING FOR YOUR SUPPORT!
Over the course of the past few weeks our rescue and rehabilitation station has received quite a few additions. At the same time the number of people wanting to be involved with protecting endangered apes, is increasing. Thus, we have decided to offer sponsorships for our orangutan-lady «Hope».
Hope’s tragic story received extensive media coverage from all over the world. She was brought into our rescue and rehabilitation station with a broken shoulder and 74 air rifle bullets in her body. The Swiss orthopaedic surgeon Andreas Messikommer operated on the severely injured orangutan and saved her life. Unfortunately, Hope has lost her eyesight due to the air rifle bullets and will have to remain with us. A reintroduction to the wild would be much too dangerous for her.
