Regrann from @international_animal_rescue - **ORANGUTAN RESCUE!** Our team have rescued a mother and her baby from isolated and fragmented rainforest near a village in Borneo.
A lack of food in this area meant that the mother had been venturing into the local village in a desperate attempt to feed her baby.
Without the quick action taken by our Orangutan Protection Unit, it is likely that this mother and her baby would have died.
This shocking footage is a reminder of how similar orangutans are to ourselves. You can truly see the intelligence and emotion in this babies eyes as he tries to protect his mother from the unknown.
Thankfully, they were swiftly moved to the safety of a protected national park, where they are now free to live out the rest of their lives in a forest abundant with fresh fruit and foliage.
