For many months we had tried to track and observe Noor. This impressive female with a dark face and long hair had proven to be very difficult to locate. Noor’s personality is like the Queen of Hearts, she often gets upset at observers and will chase them away to keep them out of her wonderland.
In keeping with the #OrangutanFreedom campaign goalof releasing 100 orangutans to conservation forests this year, the BOS Foundation (BOSF), Central Kalimantan BKSDA, and the Bukit Baka Bukit Raya National Park (TNBBBR) Agency haveagain worked together to release rehabilitated orangutans from Nyaru Menteng.
Borneo Orangutan Survival (BOS) Foundation, in cooperation with the Central Kalimantan BKSDA, will release another 12 orangutans from the Central Kalimantan Orangutan Reintroduction Center in Nyaru Menteng to the Bukit Baka Bukit Raya National Park (BBBRNP) in Katingan Regency. This will be the sixth release into the national park, and the 18th release by the BOS Foundation in Central Kalimantan since 2012.
