My Second Orangutan Adventure

<strong>Jenny Aundrews reports on the April 2007 adventure holiday.</strong> Well, there I was again at Heathrow Airport, eagerly waiting to meet my fellow Adventurers. I had taken part in the 2006 Adventure and had such an amazing time I just had to do it again!

Orangutan Appeal and Sabah Wildlife

<strong>Over the past 40 years, orang-utans rescued in Sabah were rehabilitated at Sepilok before being released into the nearby jungle. Now the Sabah Wildlife Department tells JASWINDER KAUR about plans to translocate some of them to an alternative site in Lahad Datu</strong>

Adventure report 2006

It only seemed like 5 minutes since I waved goodbye to the 2005 Adventure group and here I was back at the wonderful Rasa Ria waiting for the 2006 group to arrive.

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.
