Thanks to our guests who donated towards the purchase of fire fighting equipment to protect Orangutans from wild fires endangering the Borneo Orangutan Survival Foundation’s Care Centre in October. Money donated has purchased proper equipment for fire fighters and will continue to assist with the installation of forest bore wells. Donations for this fund are still welcome and can be made at the BOSF site http://donation.orangutan.or.id. You can also adopt an orangutan here!
The dry season is over now, but these donations will continue to provide protection for the captive orang-utans undergoing rehabilitation and re-introduction for years to come in the uncertain weather conditions we are now experiencing.
