IAR Rescue 20 Orangutans
The Monkey populations are in great danger and when forest fires strike it takes away the habitat for years. In Indonesia there have been many fires during 2015 and the Orangutan population has been badly affected. Lucky many volunteers have worked hard to save them and find them new places to live.
Forest fires in 2015 have destroyed five million acres of Indonesian forest, leaving orangutans stranded with no food and no where to make a nest. Our rescue team have been busier than ever and in the past few months have successfully rescued and released more than 20 orangutans into protected areas of forest.
