Australian animal welfare organisation, Borneo Orangutan Survival (BOS) Australia, has played an instrumental role in the world-first release of two endangered orangutans, rehabilitated by humans, into a protected Indonesian reserve. These two pioneer orangutans are the first to graduate from an innovative "Orangutan Forest School" where orphaned, rescued orangutans are lovingly reared by humans and systematically taught the life skills necessary to be self-sufficient in the wild.

BOS Australia worked closely with sister organisations and the Indonesian Ministry of Forestry to lovingly rear the orphaned, rescued orangutans before releasing them into Borneo's protected Kehje Sewen forest, where their progress will be closely monitored. The release was made possible thanks to the purchase of a 100,000 hectare piece of land, donated by Australian John Cochrane, which will eventually become home to another 200 orangutans, currently working their way through the various stages of "Forest School".
To make a donation, adopt an orangutan or find out other ways to help, visit the BOS Australia website at www.orangutans.com.au.
