The BOS Foundation’s centres are full to capacity, yet we continue to receive orphaned baby orangutans.

A male aged between 1-2 years was confiscated from a local resident of Samboja village on June 15 and brought to Samboja Lestari. He appeared to be in good condition.

Early this morning, our Nyaru Menteng centre received a  male infant estimated to be about two months old. He was rescued from Tumbang Koling village in East Kotawaringin, Central Kalimantan, by a joint team from the Central Kalimantan BKSDA and COP.


He arrived in a very weak condition and the Nyaru Menteng medical team quickly comforted the scared little tot with milk and a warm blanket. He has since found comfortable in the loving arms of our senior vet on duty, Agus Fahroni.

The BOS Foundation will provide the best care possible and see these two darlings through the rehabilitation process, so someday they can return to the wild.
