Meet our new orangutan family

By
MARCH 25 2019

Orangutan Foundation International (OFI) currently care for 330+ orangutans at their Care Centre in Central Kalimantan, Indonesian Borneo. These orangutans have been orphaned mainly due to the destruction of their habitat for palm oil plantations, illegal logging & mining. Without the OFI Care Centre, these beautiful, gentle apes would be homeless and more than likely dead.

The Care Centre is a half-way house for orangutans, providing them with food, shelter and love along with the skills they will need when they are old enough to be released back into the wild.

At Nuttvia we are excited and thrilled to have adopted six beautiful orangutans: Carmen, Amelia, Jeffrey Junior, Kobe, Hockey and Holland through the OFI where they currently reside in Sumatra, Indonesia. Nuttvia will help care for the displaced and orphaned orangutans at the OFI Care Centre and Quarantine (OCCQ) facility, during their rehabilitation back to the wild. We will be contributing to providing the medical, dietary and emotional care for the orangutans to thrive.

Orangutan Legacy Forest Borneo

Additionally, we have donated to protect and help buy back rainforest land called The Orangutan Legacy Forest through the OFI. The OFI began purchasing land in Borneo with the intention of using it as a sanctuary for displaced Orangutans. Over 300 orangutans who have had their homes taken from them have taken refuge in the legacy forest.
