Today, BOS Foundation officially commenced activities on a new, 82.84 hectare orangutan pre-release island in Wahau Sub-District, East Kutai Regency, East Kalimantan. The utilisation of the island has been made possible through cooperation between BOS Foundation and PT. Nusaraya Agro Sawit (PT. NAS). During this event, BOS Foundation also moves 10 orangutans from their Orangutan Rehabilitation Center in Samboja Lestari (Samboja Lestari) to the island, with the purpose of preparing them for their release into the forest.
Orphaned orangutans continue to arrive at Nyaru Menteng. Scared and alone, it was evident that his mother had been killed.
