MONITA

Like many other orangutans, monita was kept as a pet. Thanks to an anonymous tip, she was rescued by BOS and the nature conservation authority. It happens time and again that families take in baby orangutans and treat them like living dolls, dressing them in clothes and feeding them unsuitable leftovers.

Monita was only 3 months old when she was brought to the Nyaru Menteng protection centre. There she received veterinary care. After 2 months in quarantine with her babysitter, she was finally allowed to join the others in the baby group and was able to make new friends there.

Monita is now 4 years old and goes to forest school. She is a real bundle of temperament. She weighs 17kg and is very healthy. She is particularly talented at climbing high trees and building nests.

BUMI

When bumi was found in 2016, he was just 2 weeks old. He still had a fresh wound on his stomach where the umbilical cord once connected him to his mother. The little boy was very weak and traumatised.

In the first few nights at the rescue centre, he often woke up and cried for his mother. He was given antibiotics to prevent the umbilical wound from becoming infected and the babysitters on the ward never let him out of their sight. A cuddly toy also helped to calm him down.

Thanks to the loving care he received, he was finally able to sleep through the night again and cried for the bottle whenever he was hungry.

Today, Bumi is 5 years old and in great shape. Like Monita, he also goes to forest school. Bumi already has a friend, Tuti, a wild female orangutan who is no longer dependent on her mother. She likes to spend her time near the forest school group. Bumi and Tuti get on particularly well.

Topan

Little Topan was rescued from illegal captivity by the BOS Foundation in 2017. She was estimated to be 8 months old and weighed just 1.5kg. Half-starved and thirsty, she was immediately admitted to Nyaru Menteng's intensive care unit.

After a week of care, she was able to join the other babies in the quarantine ward. Even though she was already feeling much better physically, the loss of her mother was very difficult for her.

The babysitters at BOS gradually gave her back her motherly comfort and cared for her with complete dedication. The little pile of misery blossomed into a wild little monkey girl.

Topan is now 6 years old. Her favourite pastime is swinging from tree to tree on lianas.

Topan is usually on her own at forest school. That's a shame, because she also needs to practise socialising. She only meets up with her best friends, Monita and Alejandra, at the feeding station. Topan is well on the way to developing into an independent orangutan.

Taymur

It was a coincidence that saved Taymur. Not even two years old, he became a victim of the illegal international wildlife trade. He was smuggled from Indonesia to Kuwait. There, his owner kept him as a pet, gave him
drugs for fun.

One year after his return home, Taymur's life has turned 180 degrees: The little guy is healthy, lives in safety and has made many new friends in the forest school at the BOS sanctuary. Taymur's story is truly film-worthy. So it's no surprise that he has now landed his first film role. He is one of the protagonists in the New Zealand documentary series "Orangutan Jungle School" and his charm turns the heads of more than just his animal friends.

BORNEO ORANGUTAN SURVIVAL

The topic of sustainability should not end with our work. We also want to take responsibility for nature and the environment beyond that. One of our projects is the cooperation with the organization Borneo Orangutan Survival (BOS). We support BOS with sponsorships and donations, and we also want to help raise the visibility of orangutan protection.

WHY ORANGUTAN PROTECTION?

Tropical rainforests are the most species-rich ecosystems on our planet. It is not for nothing that they are also called the "green lungs" of the earth. Saving animals and rehabilitating them in stations is not enough to save a species from extinction. Anyone who wants to protect species sustainably must also protect the habitat. Palm oil, mining and timber companies are turning the last remaining tropical forests into mono-plantations, sand deserts or desolate grasslands. In order to give the rehabilitated orangutans a future, the last rainforests must be protected. The BOS Foundation has set itself this as a long-term goal.
