Update from Bukit Batikap Protection Forest

Thanks to your amazing support, we are getting closer to our goal! Thank you to you all and we are excited to share an update with you on our project in the Bukit Batikap Protection Forest!


The BOS Foundation Post Release Monitoring (PRM) team have been busy collecting data from the cameras.

One of our highlights has to be these images of relatively new mother, Manggo, together with her baby Melki! Manggo was released on Valentine’s Day in 2013 as a 7ish year-old, together with her mother Markisa and baby brother Uli. After her release, Manggo quickly gained her independence and 8 years later we are delighted to see her with her own baby. Both are very healthy and undoubtedly Manggo is a great Mum to curious little Melki. In case you were wondering the name Melki comes from our former PRM Coordinator at Batikap who was instrumental in helping to set up our camera trap project. Thank you Melki and it looks like Manggo and your namesake dropped by one of the cameras to say thank you too!


We have a few more orangutans on camera that we are still trying to identify and we are pretty sure that one or two of them might be orangutans we released with their mothers when they were still young and they are now entering their teenage years. Orangutans’ faces can change quite significantly as they grow up and we are checking back with the babysitters and veterinarians at Nyaru Menteng to see if they can help us identify these individuals.


So many other species have been passing by the cameras and we are busy labeling all of the 223,000 images we have gathered so far. For now we wanted to share a few of those, like these two muntjacs’ who spent ages standing in front of this particular camera grooming each other with gentle licks (kisses). We also captured this image of a clouded leopard and a stunning image of an adult red langur.


As we continue to process all the data, we’ll report back with our latest findings and exciting new images.


Thank you for supporting the protection of our reintroduced orangutans. We couldn’t do it without you!
