Boxing Orangutans campaign successful

Wonderful news. Our campaign in Thailand has been successful.

It was reported in the Jakarta Post newspaper that the King of Thailand and the top Government Officials had been bombarded with emails and postcards regarding the illegally held orangutans which made to perform in the boxing ring for tourists at Safari World.

53 orangutans will be returned to Indonesia within the next 4-8 weeks. First, they must all be health screened, DNA tested, etc, and whilst this is being done jointly with Indonesian officials, the logistics of moving this many orangutans is being organised. If you sent those emails and postcards YOU have played a VERY important part in giving these orangutans their eventual freedom again, something I hope you will feel proud of.
