Orangutan orphans

I believe Kesi is at the end of this video:

What will you tell your children when the orangutans are extinct?  Watch this video.

The following video has some wonderful shots of orangutans.  It is informative but also entertaining:

Orangutan Heros – We Love You!

Lone Droscher-Nielson was a SAS flight attendant from Aalborg, Denmark and now manages the largest primate project in the world.

It began when she vacationed at a compound in Borneo’s Tanjung Puting National Park 14 years ago.  She said she had no choice after she saw the malnourished, intelligent, childlike orangutans with outstretched hands and pleading eyes.  She had to save them.

She founded the Nyaru Menteng Rescue and Rehabilitation Center in 1999 and makes her home there with her beloved orangutans. 

There are over 600 orangutans to be cared for at the Center so Lone’s job is literally never done.  Between taking care of the orangutans, administration of the center and fundraising she is on duty or on call around the clock. 

Her sleeping quarters are very close to the orphaned babies nursery and she is often awakened at night by their cries for their dead mothers many of whom they watched murdered before their very eyes.  At one time she not only worked all day but got up with the little ones to feed them at night.  Thankfully, now there are two babysitters that work through the night soothing the tiny ones when they wake frightened and feeding them as their mothers would if they had lived.

In fact, there are now over 100 employees at the center which include veterinarians, lab technicians, cooks and orangutan nannies.

ONE – Please Save Our Orangutans

These little ones at the Nyaru Menteng Center need your support.

Adopt one today.

You will see a baby orangutan clinging to its dead mother in this video.  It is very moving but may be upsetting to some people.

This is a heartfelt plea to help one of God’s creations – the orangutan.
