Rescuing Orangutans with HOCRU

By Rhia Docherty | Individual Giving Manager

Your donations support HOCRU - the Human Orangutan Conflict Resolution Unit. 

HOCRU was created to address Human- Orangutan conflict in agricultural landscape in Northern Sumatra (Aceh and North Sumatra provinces). As a team unit, HOCRU is a direct response to the threats and their consequences to orangutans such as tackling poaching, conflicts and illegal trade causes while at the same time limiting the consequences of habitat loss endangering orangutan populations. The project is in line with the Orangutan Conservation Action Plan 2018-2027, agreed by the Indonesian government after consultation with relevant stakeholders. 

 

HOW HOCRU DECIDES TO RESCUE

 

STEP ONE
HOCRU receives information from a community, partner organisations or a government institution such as The Nature Conservation Agency ( BKSDA )

STEP TWO
Ground check verification is conducted along with a coordinator and we receive recommendations for action from BKSDA

STEP THREE
If possible, the orangutan could be moved on into the forest by using noises and flares

STEP FOUR
If Step Three is not possible, we move to a physical rescue. Rescue can be in the form of translocating or confiscating from private ownership. This will be conducted jointly with BKSDA and Gunung Leuser National Park (TNGL). Rescue is usually decided if the orangutan is isolated or if physically injured from conflict.
Thank you for helping to raise $4,686 to rescue wild orangutans in 2023 - let's do even more in 2024!
