To commemorate Earth Day, which falls today, the BOS Foundation, in cooperation with fX Sudirman Jakarta, as organised a series of events themed #SuaraUntukBumi, or Voice for Earth.
It has been eight years since RHOI’s establishment, and much progress has been made. From 2012 to date, 62 orangutans from Samboja Lestari were reintroduced to Kehje Sewen Forest. Among the 62 released, two adult females - Yayang and Lesan – have given birth to our first wild babies in Kehje Sewen, which is a great indicator of the success of our orangutan reintroduction program.
After months of coordinating and planning, we are delighted to announce that Taymur has finally returned home! Over the last few months BOS Foundation has been working tirelessly with the Ministry of Environment and Forestry, together with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs through the Indonesian Embassy in Kuwait, to successfully repatriate this 2-year old male orangutan.
