Alejandra and her bestie Topan 🥰🧡 #Love #Hope #Orangutan #NotAPet #WarmNFuzzy #FridayFeeling These babies are orphans undergoing rehabilitation at #OrangutanJungleSchool. Orangutans are wild animals, not pets. They should also never be forced to live with or perform for humans.
Help Please! 😱😷🔥 As you can see from this video, thick, acrid smoke is cloaking Orangutan Jungle School and the orangutans, especially the babies are at risk of respiratory infection. Human schools in the area have been closed, but that's not an option at OJS! The staff are in desperate need of fireproof clothing, personal protective equipment, water pumps and hoses, and need funding for the construction of additional reservoirs and to support the patrol teams. Anything that you can give will help, a little goes a long way in Indonesia, and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for caring. 💛 https://www.bos-uk.org/support/bos-uk-donations/i/fire-protection-prevention

#MondayMotivation #OrangutanFreedom On 26 June, Komo was released into Kehje Sewen Forest and the monitoring team has reported the great news that he's thriving his new environment! 👏 Komo has been tucking into the many natural foods on offer in the forest, in particular, garcinia fruits and young liana leaves and fruits, which appear to be his favourites. 🌱🍑 21 year old Komo was also observed making long calls, the distinctive vocalisation that mature male orangutans bellow to mark their home range and attract females. 🌳 So, finally free, Komo is announcing that he's the King of this part of the jungle and is looking for a mate! We hope he finds one! 😍💕 Komo was rescued in 2002, aged 4, from a villager who had been illegally him kept as a #pet. 😧 The photos show Komo pre-release, leaving his travel crate and FREE! #OrangutanJungleSchool
The Indonesian Government has declared a state of emergency as fires are once more blazing across Central Borneo, coming within 300 of Nyaru Menteng, and threatening the lives of the staff and students at #OrangutanJungleSchool. 🔥😷 In the Mawas Conservation Forest, home to 2,500 wild orangutans, teams have increased patrols and invoked emergency fire protocols. In 2015 fires caused severe damage within our and destroyed more than 4.2 million acres of forest in Indonesia. Last we heard, the brave staff, working in conjunction with the emergency services, have the situation under control, but the fires can last for weeks, sometimes even months, burning downwards into the thick layers of peat over large areas, re-emerging with no warning. 😱 Please help! Your donation will help us to fight against the fires and preserve the habitat of the orangutans. TY! Website link in bio. 🌳
