On the rainy long weekend, SOCP team along with staff from @BKSDA Aceh, just resqued two sumatran orangutans, a baby and her mother from the area of 'Orangutan Capital of the Worl'd, the Tripa swamps of the Leuser Ecosystem.
Some of you might remember 'Black' from a few months ago in the same place (so it's possible he is the father). As his forest habitat was becoming increasingly fragmented and unable to support him. Him we translocated to the Sumatran Orangutan Conservation Programme (SOCP) Reintroduction Site at Jantho, where he quickly went off into the rich forest to make a new life in this highly protected Nature Reserve, which we know can still handle many more orangutans, in terms of carrying capacity.
