Following a year-long campaign and several months of construction, the brand new Baby House at the BOS Foundation’s Orangutan Reintroduction Center in Nyaru Menteng (Nyaru Menteng) is finally ready to accommodate our baby orangutans from the Nursery Group. A day after Independence Day of the Republic of Indonesia, our sixteen babies have a new home!
In response to all of the new arrivals, BOS Foundation launched a fund-raising campaign to build a new Baby House in December 2015 and commenced construction in mid-2016. BOS Foundation has built new Baby Houses in both of our orangutan rehabilitation centers: Nyaru Menteng in Central Kalimantan and Samboja Lestari in East Kalimantan.
The new Baby House is equipped with an indoor playground and enrichment facilities as well as a special Forest School located less than 100 meters away designed for the Nursery Group orangutans. After a 20-month wait, baby orangutans in Nyaru Menteng will finally be able to enjoy the new facilities and comfort of their new home.
Huge thanks to all who supported this beautiful home!
