Adopt Gokong

Tripa where Gokong Puntung, was confiscated is part of the world famous Leuser Ecosystem.

Confiscated from the home of an Indonesian palm oil plantation worker, he was weak, suffering from malnutrition and is severely underweight. He has been snatched from his mother, witnessed her brutal torture, and was bought for AU$10.40 from the fisherman who stole him from his wild home. 

Fisherman came across this opportunity to snatch this little baby from his mother and sell him to an employee working for PT Socfindo for a ‘quick buck’ highlights the desperate situation Orangutans face in their fight from extinction. 

Tripa where Gokong Puntung, was confiscated is part of the world famous Leuser Ecosystem. This precious and unique biodiversity hotspot contains over 80% of the world’s remaining wild Sumatran Orangutans and is the last place on Earth where the Sumatran tiger, orangutan, rhino and elephant co-exist. His once-thin body is starting to fill out and he was learning to climb! The Care Center team have worked tirelessly to achieve this outcome.
