Wonderful news from the orangutan project in Indonesia:

http://www.internationalanimalrescue.org/news/2013/537/After+seeing+her+mother+tortured+and+killed%2C+Peni+the+orangutan+returns+to+her+home+in+the+forest.html

We are so delighted that Peni was able to be released back into the wild. Witnessing the brutal murder of her mother was hugely traumatic and distressing to this young orangutan, but the hard work of our team has truly reaped rewards.

Good luck, Peni!

We have launched an appeal to raise funds for a very exciting project: Mely's Island.

http://ow.ly/jVj92

It’s not easy or cheap to build an enclosure strong and secure enough to keep an adult orangutan safe. In fact, it’s simpler to buy a small island where we can release our rescued adult orangutans and give them their first taste of freedom. 

Orangutans like Mely, who was snatched from the wild at such a young age that she has never climbed a tree; like Monte, who had been chained up in a cage so small that he couldn't stand up, and all the other fully grown orangutans who should be swinging through the forests of Indonesia will be able to be released onto this island, and closely monitored by our team to ensure that they can survive in the wild. Once the team is satisfied, each orangutan can then be released into a protected area of forest.

Thanks for the invite! We're hoping to highlight the illegal wildlife trade and its devastating effect on the forests of Indonesia, so this group will be pretty useful :)

International Animal Rescue has today released footage of scenes of devastation in Indonesia. The team was alerted to the plights of four wild orangutans, including nursing mothers and a tiny baby, stranded on on an oil palm concession. A second baby is missing, and likely to have died of starvation.

The film highlights major flaws in the regulation and enforcement of the guidelines for members of the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO). 

Please watch the film and share with your friends.
