Orang Utan Rescue - Back to the WildKetapang, West Kalimantan
Meet Dr. Karmele Sanchez, 36 years old Vet that dedicate her life for orangutan in Indonesia. She build a rescue centre with her team in West Borneo, Indonesia in 2007. With help from International vets, scientist, staff and volunteers, they rescue and rehabilitate injured and orphaned orangutans and release them back to the wild. Release, not very often happened. It's require long process. But, we are coming in the perfect time.
It's incredibly satisfying to return an orangutan back to the forest. Once we opened the cage for Kaliba he exited calmly with dignity back to his home in the wild. He climbed a tree and remained there for hours. The release team, and all of us, felt joy at his release, smiles all around.
Orangutan, which means 'man of the forest' in the Indonesian language, belong in the forest. I'm sure you'll agree with that.
