Orangutan Reintroduction Program?
The Central Kalimantan Orangutan Reintroduction Program at Nyaru Menteng was established in 1999, specifically to provide care and rehabilitation to displaced or orphaned orangutans rescued from areas of habitat loss through human development activities.
Located in Nyaru Menteng Arboretum, about 30 kilometers from downtown Palangka Raya, our main activities at Nyaru Menteng include orangutan rescue and translocation, the provision of welfare and healthcare, rehabilitation, and reintroduction. Conservation of habitat and wildlife can only be achieved by working together with local communities and other stakeholders, hence in all areas of our work we fully engage with local communities and schools on community development activities and outreach conservation education.
BOS Foundation has rescued over 1200 orangutans in Central Kalimantan and currently care for and support almost 450 orangutans at Nyaru Menteng

Reintroduction Our overriding goal is to reintroduce orangutans back to secure natural habitat to establish new viable long-term populations to bolster conservation of the species in the wild. The forest areas we have secured for our reintroduction program in Central Kalimantan are established with camps, equipment and trained personnel to ensure that our Orangutan Field Monitoring Programs are able to continuously monitor each orangutan’s adaptation to their natural habitat. This involves a great deal of ongoing logistical support, planning and is very costly. You can support our Release Programs through your donations.
