The team confiscated Harapi and transported him safely to our BORA rescue centre, approximately a three-hour drive away. Harapi was given a thorough examination and estimated to be approximately 10 months old. Thankfully, he was in reasonable health. Being so young, Harapi required constant care from the orangutan and veterinary staff. He was also given a large soft toy and blankets to cuddle. Harapi settled into the BORA centre well. He loves to go outside and explore the baby playground and forest and has a voracious appetite.
He was given the name Harapi as it means ‘hope’ in Indonesian. Precious Harapi can now begin a new life with us at our BORA rescue centre with renewed hope for a better future. With your support, our staff will give him years of care and Jungle School to ensure he has the best possible chance to return to and thrive in the wild where he belongs.
By adopting Harapi today, you are helping fund our activities to protect him and his friends from the threats they face. You will receive regular updates on their progress as they are cared for in our facilities, with the hope of eventually returing to the jungle.
Depending on the adoption package you purchase you will receive
an adoption pack for yourself or your loved ones.
