Orangutan, the red-hair great apes native to the island of Borneo and Sumatra are facing a high risk of extinction due to habitat loss and hunting. This highly intelligent creature shares 97% DNA as human. There are 3 species of Orangutan found in Indonesia, those are Bornean Orangutan, Sumatra Orangutan and the newly found Tapanuli Orangutan.
Adventure Indonesia had a privilege to join Orangutan Freedom trip by Borneo Orangutan Survival Foundation (BOSF) alongside the winners of Orangutan Freedom competition. Orangutan Freedom is a global campaign by BOS Foundation to raise awareness the conservation of Orangutan and their lush forest home.
Orangutan Freedom is an unforgettable Orangutan experience, an eye opening journey how serious the threats Orangutan is facing. For six days we were witnessed first-hand how the Orangutan conservation project running, accompanied by professional and highly dedicated staff. There are lot of things to take care of, from their nutrition, welfare, to their learning progress how they can live independently in the jungle.
