5 December 2016 – Great news from our friends at Sumatran Orangutan Conservation Programme (SOCP) about Rosie and Femi! After establishing by DNA-test they are both Sumatran, they are accepted to move to SOCP on Sumatra. There they will be together with many other Orangutan babies and in the perfect circumstance to rehabilitate for potential future release in the wild. Now the permits for translocation to Sumatra can be arranged, hopefully this won’t take too long… In the meanwhile Rosie and Femi are placed in outside cages during day time and get outside twice a day for climbing high up the trees under our close supervision.
