New orangutan rescue truck on the road, thank you!

Young female orangutan, now in safe hands
A few weeks ago we launched an appeal for donations to buy a new truck for Sumatra's only orangutan rescue team: the Human Orangutan Conflict Response Unit (HOCRU). There was an amazing response from our supporters all over the world, and we're very happy to report that the target was reached in just a few days, and a new rescue truck is now on the road!
The team have already been able to save yet another precious life - a young female orangutan was confiscated the illegal pet trade last month, and is now in safe hands.
Thank you to everyone who donated and shared the appeal - with your support, the team will be able to reach even more orangutans in danger and give them a second chance at life in the wild.
The team asked us to share a short video message - see the link below.
