International Orangutan day

19 August 2016 – The love for Orangutans is one of the reasons why Wanicare Foundation was established in 2008. During the years that Wanicare has been working in Indonesia, the situation for Bornean and Sumatran orangutans has only become worse due to the increasing number of hectares of forest disappearing for the palm oil industry. Every year the number of orangutans in the wild is rapidly decreasing and the number of orangutans in rescue centers increasing. Currently there are four orangutans under our care, including two recently rescued babies: Dodo, Noni, Femi and Rosi.
With today being International Orangutan Day we ask everyone to avoid the buying of products with palm oil, raise awareness and help to stop the brutal killing of mother orangutans so that their babies can be traded. Adopt an orangutan and take action now before it is too late!

Update Rosi and Femi

1 August 2016 – Rosi, the first arrival, is very playful and keeps going up and down the playground. Femi, the second arrival, mostly stays close to the caretaker but when they meet somewhere along the playground Femi joins Rosi and they play together untill they get distracted by something else.












Update Orangutan babies

28 July 2016 – The young orangutan that arrived yesterday morning is slowly settling in, which means she is also catching up on a lot of sleep. Her rescue was part of a big confiscation in which another four! young orangutans were saved from the hands of traders by a joint operation of JAAN, Centre for Orangutan Protection and BKSDA. These young orangutans are captured after their mothers are killed and in the case of this little girl her horrific journey continued when she was sent by box inside a public bus from Lampung, Sumatra, to Jakarta! Here at Cikananga she now receives 24hour care and love during her quarantine period to help her recover from her ordeal.

Update II on Orangutan rescue

24 July 2016 – After another good night it was time to go outside, she spent a half hour swinging and having fun with all the elements we have in our playground. Afterwards she was really tired, but her personality, independence and strength are amazing, therefore she already convinced us that she will find her way back to the treetops, her home. But first she will receive all the love and care to regain strength.















Update on Orangutan rescue

23 July 2016 – Yesterday our new arrival took all the time to catch up with sleep and in the afternoon she became a bit more active. Currently she is happily drinking milk every 3 hours and her favorite fruit is at the moment orange.

You can help by supporting the care off this beautiful girl! Every donation will go to her milk, food and medical care. And as soon as she is ready, your donation will help to cover the costs of her translocation to a specialized rehabilitation center in Indonesia.
