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.

Primary school raises £750

In October 2004 Dr Sen Nathan and Mr Laurentius Ambu from Sabah Wildlife Department were in the UK delivering their lecture tour on Orangutan Rehabilitation. At the Twycross Zoo event, James Reay a teacher from Fleckney Church of England Primary School (just outside of Leicester) introduced himself.

Use of Orangutans in advertising campaign

<strong>Orangutan Appeal UK do not support Meteor's use of orangutans in their advertising campaign - and in fact strongly disagree with such tactics.</strong> Meteor have recently (October 05) adopted one of our orphan orangutans and made a small donation to our Appeal, but without disclosing who they were or what they were involved in - this in our view is a DEPLORABLE TACTIC. We have since refunded their donation. We wish to make it known that we fully support the action being taken by the Captive Animals Protection Society to discourage such activities and sincerely hope they are successful in having Meteors advert withdrawn.

Adventure 2005 Report

When Sue Sheward, our Chairperson, told me that I had been chosen to be the Appeal’s rep on the 2005 Borneo Orangutan Adventure I was over the moon. I love my job of Liaison Officer at the Centre but this would give me a chance to visit some of the amazing places I had heard of but just hadn’t had the time to visit. However, I was not so sure it was a good thing when I was called to a briefing weekend at HQ and discovered my Adventurers ranged in age from 24 to 68! How would I keep them all happy? Would I be up to the task? Sue assured me I would be and after having spoken to everyone on the phone I began to feel more confident.

Research

Appeal needs help funding critical research

Could we do better? This is the question we have been asking ourselves for quite some time! For 40 years Sepilok Rehab Centre has been releasing rehabilitated individuals into the Kabilli Reserve, which surrounds the Centre. In more recent years the more advanced orangutans have been relocated to Tabin and other reserves where they can be truly wild. BUT WE DON'T KNOW HOW WELL THEY COPE and Sepilok do not have the funds to find out!
