Today at Sumatran Orangutan Conservation Programme (SOCP) Quarantine and Rehabilitation Center, our vet team conducted the first medical check to a new arrival orangutan named Kobochan. Kobochan is a male infant orangutan (estimated 2years old) that was confiscated from its illegal owner in Kutacane, Southeast Aceh by the team of Bksda Aceh on saturday (22/9). The previous owner dressed Kobochan like human and make him as a cute pet.
From the medical check today our vet informed that Kobochan is in good health. Yet he needs to get the rehabilitation before he's ready to live in the wild. . . Support SOCP on #GivingDayforApes by Arcus Foundation - Great Ape Conservation . Please DONATE now >> https://mtyc.co/xeuchf

A large isolated male Sumatran orangutan (Pongo abelii) was rescued and evacuated by a team of Sumatran Orangutan Conservation Programme (SOCP) and the Aceh Conservation Agency (@bksdaaceh ) from a tiny fragment of forest surrounded by palm oil plantations in the Tripa peat swamps, part of the world renowned Leuser Ecosystem in Sumatra, Indonesia.
The orangutan, an adult male aged around 30 to 35 years old, then named to be "M (Mawas) Salah, since the rescue team were discussing the performance of English football team Liverpool and Egypt’s striker during this year’s World Cup. From the medical check by our vet, it's stated that M Salah is surprisingly good health, yet he looked stress after being isolated for long time and forced to live in such a barren environment since his habitat was destroyed.
This morning (31/08), M Salah has been released safely in SOCP Reintroduction center in Jantho, Aceh. He is now joining over 100 orangutans already introduced into the new population we are gradually creating, and he will probably live a long life in the wild there.

#Repost@maxime_aliaga (@get_repost) ・・・ Releasing Orangutan into the wild is a very important but hard process. Since now more than 15 years working on north sumatra @socp.official are expert on Sumatran Orangutan conservation. They have several facilities in the region and have well trained and decated team working on it. So far they have been released more than 200 Orangutans into the wild. Since 2 years now I follow and document their work and I am often impress by their passion and motivation. They make a true difference on the consevration of this wonderful species which is at the edge of extinction. Let's hope a bright futur for those Orangutans who get backed home : into the Forest. . . . . .
#Repost@maxime_aliaga (@get_repost) ・・・ Orangutan school at @socp.official Quarantine and Rehabilitation Center is a very important part of the release process. In a litle patch of forest the young orangutans come to play under the careful watch of their keepers. Playing is the most efficient tool of learning, it is true for human but it is also true for the Orangutans. They climb on the trees, hang from branch to branch, look after some fruits, and interact in between each other. This animate them and improve their natural skills and instinct to go back into the forest. They belong to the forest and not to a cage! After few years, they are able to be safe on the trees, to find some food and make a nest. When they are ready there are bring to an other facility in Aceh province at the edge of a prestine forest where they will go back to the "big green" : an healty and well protected forest. . . . . @paneco_ch@rememberinggreatapes @dicsoverychannel@natgeo@nature
