We purchased the land that our new BORA Rescue and Rehabilitation is being built on. This new location provides much better access to food and supplies for the orangutans and staff. There is also better internet signal so communications regarding orangutan rescues and illegal activities will be improved.
We're really looking forward to moving in - and the great news is that one of our most recent rescues, Amil, will be the first orangutan to move here. You may remember that we rescued Amil in March this year from an abandoned zoo. We're excited to be able to start to give Amil a new life at our new centre.
It's taken many months and dozens of people working hard in the hot sun to get to this point. When the medical clinic, enclosures, gardens and office building are finished, it represents a new step forward for the precious orangutans in our care, and we're so grateful for all your support to make this happen.
