COVID-19 - Special precautions being undertaken to ensure the health and safety of orangutans
Home Page > News > Newsletter October 2019 – From the Heart of the Forest

In this issue we are so happy to update you on little sun bear Hitam’s progress, now that she has undergone lifesaving surgery, in a follow up to our recent urgent Operation Sun Bear Borneo appeal.

You can also read about Ester, a wild orangutan rescued by OFI with horrific injuries, who is also on the mend after help from the incredible Australian veterinary team who volunteered their time to operate on Hitam.

Be sure to watch Hitam and Esters’ stories in the videos posted below!

We share news from the field in Borneo about the construction of a third haha, and an update on how we are helping OFI staff to fight devastating forest fires.

Finally, we share pics and give thanks to the lovely people who joined our Sydney City2Surf and Bridge to Brisbane teams recently to raise the funds needed for another year’s special one-on-one care for our disabled orangutan Hockey, so she gets the quality of life she deserves.

For all this and more…
