BOS - Borneo Orangutan Survival
What is the project about?
Climbing, playing, doing mischief - this is the ideal childhood of an orangutan baby. In Borneo's rainforests, however, many small apes have lost their mothers. These were killed before their eyes, dying in forest fires or clearings. Their last chance: The baby house of BOS in Indonesian Nyaru Menteng. EMERALD BERLIN supports the maintenance of this house. Make a statement with your shirt as well, for the survival of the last orangutans.
BOS in Nyaru Menteng
In early 2018, an international study shocked the world: in only 15 years, the orang-utan population in Borneo reduced by a total of 148,500 animals with only 54,000 still in existence. Furthermore, researchers are predicting a dark future for our red-haired relatives: By 2050, another 50,000 animals could have disappeared. Poaching and the destruction of their habitat are the main causes of the orangutans dying. While fighting for their homes and protecting their offspring, especially the adult apes are killed, leaving their helpless babies and youngsters behind. Without our help, they have no chance to survive.
The survival of the orangutans
is very closely related
to our own destiny.
A private home for orangutan babies
The Baby House of Nyaru Menteng offers rescued orangutan orphans the chance of an independent life. Here, both healthy and sick little primates have the best of care from babysitters and doctors. A private infirmary, playgrounds, bedrooms and even a private forest kindergarten are available to the youngest. Their caregivers take care of the often highly traumatized monkey children around the clock. Our ultimate goal: to give the orphaned babies the protection, the love and education, in order to be able to live in the wild again in some years. The baby house of Nyaru Menteng is the basis for this.
„Every rescued baby means a mother killed.“
