[Breaking News] BOS Foundation’s Nyaru Menteng Team Rescues the 18th Baby Orangutan in 2017

Today, a joint rescue team from BOS Foundation and the Central Kalimantan BKSDA rescued another baby orangutan, who we estimate to be 3 years old, from Teluk Nyatu village, Kuala Kurun Sub-District, Gunung Mas Regency, Central Kalimantan. This baby has reportedly been held captive by local people for around 3 years, meaning they have had her since a very young age.

The accompanying vet from BOS Foundation-Nyaru Menteng, Lia Kristina, was on hand to provide immediate medical care and, from initial reports the baby orangutan is in a relatively stable condition, though very underweight. She is now on her way to Nyaru Menteng for a thorough health examination and some much needed 24-hour care.

This little girl is the 18th baby orangutan rescued by Nyaru Menteng this year.
