A fresh start for Jen.

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to grip many countries around the world, including Indonesia, the HOCRU teams continue to work hard to monitor isolated orangutans and rescue those who are particularly in need. A few weeks ago, the team worked together with the forestry authorities and local people to evacuate an isolated female orangutan from Kapa Seusak village in Aceh province.

The orangutan, later named Jen, was found in a plantation around 8km away from the forest. Fortunately, her health check showed that she was in perfect condition, with no injuries or malnutrition, so she was released back into the wild the same day.

Thank you for your continued support at this difficult time. You are helping orangutans have a safe future in the wild.

The health check continues.
