The bamboo bridge of the SOCP's Orangutan HAVEN in Medan, Sumatra.

Architecture can be so much more exciting when natural materials are used. We are looking into the next bamboo build in the sanctuary so watch this space 🌱 Been practicing piloting the drone, always wonderful to be able to see like a bird.

Other orangutan that will go for Reintroduction this week is CUT LUWES, a female sumatran orangutan that brought by a citizen to police office in Gayo Lues, Central Aceh on mid 2015. Since then Cut Luwes is taken care and passed the quarantine period and joined the Socialisation Group. Cut Luwes unaccustomed to people and will stay away when people approach her cage. This month, Cut Luwes will start her new journey back to the wild forest.

Last but not least from the group is ULLY, young female sumatran orangutan (estimated 5 years old). Ully was one of the 4 baby orangutans saved from wildlife trade on July 2016 when smuggled from Aceh to Medan, North Sumatra. The four then brought to the SOCP Quarantine and Rehabilitation Centre for better care and rehabilitation process. Ully will be the first of these four baby orangutans that will back to their home, Sumatra rainforest. Her three friends Dina, Iben and Deka are still under rehabilitation process and as they need lots of support by SOCP staff before they can join Ully in the forest someday!

[Orangutan Reintroduction News]

We are very happy to inform that we have 4 orangutans that ready for release this week. These young sumatran orangutans will be transfered to the Sumatran Orangutan Conservation Programme (SOCP) Reintroduction Center in Jantho, Aceh province.
.
.
Firstly, meet LEO (6,5 years old), the only male from this group. He was confiscated from Aceh Tamiang in 2016 from a villager that kept him in the house. When the first time came to the center, he had a terrible skin disease in almost whole body, but now he looks so healthy and his hair is totally cure.

Next is ARUNA, a young female orangutan that was confiscated from South Aceh in march 2015. She was in a bad malnutrition and dehydration when arrived at the SOCP center. During in the quarantine the staff notice that Aruna is very accustomed to people thus she really need a rehabilitation. After passed the process, now the time for Aruna to live in the real forest in Jantho.

It's a happy day for Fatima because she get her first time goes to the forest school at Sumatran Orangutan Conservation Programme (SOCP) Quarantine and Rehabilitation Center. Fatima is a young female sumatran orangutan (estimated 6years old) that confiscated from east aceh on Juli 2018.

At the beginning she's only playing on the ground and eating some leaves, but then she climbed slowly following her friends at the trees. Fatima used to be a pet and has no wildlife experience without her mother. Wish Fatima can learn and develop her skill through the forest school before someday she's ready to live in the wild.

From the health check, the vet confirmed that both Ina and Boncel are in good condition and getting more weight since the first time came to the center 3 months ago.
Next they will go to the socialization enclosure and meet their new friends under rehabilitation.

Orangutan is also known as gardener of the forest. They play a vital role in seed dispersal and in maintaining the health of the forest ecosystem, which is important for people and a host of other animals. So by conserving the orangutan’s habitat, we’re also benefiting the communities and other species.

Photo by @TimLaman. A male Tapanuli Orangutan performing a long call, a vocalization adult male orangutans use to both let females know where they are, and to proclaim their territory to other males. The Tapanuli Orangutan is a new, third species of orangutan just recognized by scientists, Pongo tapanuliensis, found only in one small area of N. Sumatra. Besides the genetic and other differences, the vocalizations of Tapanuli Orangutans have also been shown by researchers to be distinct from the other two orangutan species, the Sumatran and Bornean. The Sumatran Orangutan Conservation Programme are working with the Indonesian govt. to help protect this species. Check them out @socp.official. Shot on assignment for @NatGeo. See the link in my profile to the article on @NatGeo News to learn more.

The Batang toru ecosystem is the prestine and unique habitat of the new discovered specie of Orangutan : The Tapanuli Orangutan (Pongo tapanuliensis). The Batang Toru Ecosystem has very high faunal biodiversity. Ninety-one mammal species have already been recorded, including very rare species such as the sumatran tiger, and the recently described new great ape species tapanuli orangutan, only found in the Batang Toru Ecosystem. .

Last year the news came out, there is a NEW SPECIES of Orangutan in Indonesia !!! The Tapanuli Orangutan (Pongo tapanuliensis). This small population is known since 1997 but scientist thought it was the same species from the Sumatran Orangutan (Pongo abelii). After a long process to study their morphology and their DNA, they officialised the new in the "Current Biology" the 2 november 2017. In fact this specie is the oldest Orangutan on earth and it is closer from the Bornean Orangutan than the Sumatran Orangutan. The problem is that there is only 800 individus remaining of this specie, living ONLY in Batang toru forest at the south of Toba lake in Sumatra. There are the Great Apes the most in danger of extinction in the world !!!! Unfortunetely their ecosystem is in a direct threat with the on going construction of an Hydro damn right in the middle of their unique habitat ! May we see this specie disapear, just after we discovered it ?!... The fight is on going in order to save the Tapanuli orangutans and the Batang toru forest, wich is their only home on earth.

Photo by @TimLaman. A pristine river flows through the Batang Toru rain forest in Sumatra. This is the home of the newly described Tapanuli Orangutan, and there are only about 110,000 hectares of habitat remaining for the Tapanuli Orangutans, according to the Sumatran Orangutan Conservation Project (@socp.official), that has been studying this population of orangutans since 2005. This newly recognized species, Pongo tapanuliensis, is sadly automatically the most endangered great ape, with its small population of only 800 or less. Hopefully this new attention to this important population of orangutans will galvanize the efforts of Indonesian government and conservation groups to safeguard this area. Please contact @socp.official, and do what you can do to help. #Endangered, #orangutan, #Tapanuli, #TapanuliOrangutan, #BatangToru, #Sumatra, #Indonesia, #IndonesiaBiodiversity, @NatGeoCreative.
