A male orangutan was saved by the joint team of OIC HOCRU team, Aceh BKSDA and the local people from Ie Jerneh village, Middle Trumon Subdistrict – Aceh province. This orangutan was found being isolated inside of local resident’s oil palm plantation. Seeing the situation can be dangerous for the orangutan, OIC HOCRU team sedated and rescue the orangutan safely. This orangutan was assumed to live in the area for awhile.
Through the general check, this male orangutan is about 30 years old with a good health condition. Later, he was released on the same day. Safe again at last, in his new home. Special thanks for OVAID that donated our newest rescue bag along with the medical supplies!
