Mother and baby orangutan pair rescued!

By Helen Buckland | Director

The baby orangutan is carried to safety.
The baby orangutan is carried to safety.

Earlier this week, a mother and baby orangutan pair were rescued from an oil palm plantation in Aceh province, Sumatra. They were trapped in a tiny patch of forest, with the land being cleared around them. Luckily, the rescue team were able to get there in time, and both have been safely released into protected forests. They were strong and healthy, quickly climbing the trees and swinging off into the forest canopy when they were released.

The rescue team is literally a lifeline for orangutans trapped in plantations or being kept in cages as pets. They give these animals a second chance at life in the wild. It is vitally important that we help every orangutan that we can - as well as protecting their habitat and keeping the forests safe.

Please consider setting up a regular monthly donation to this project. All recurring donations are being matched right now, which means that your donation would be doubled, every month. Please help us keep supporting the heroes working on the frontline - together we can create a brighter future for orangutans.
