Haven News - May 2014

Released: 05-Jan-2014

The latest news from the "Build A Sanctuary" Orangutan Haven:

  • SOCP is planning on employing an Agricultural Land Manager specialist. This person will be working on the Haven land overseeing all the current agricultural assets and planning.
  • Volunteer Program – the development of a volunteer program is underway. The first instance we are seeking agricultural skills and positions will be advertised on the Earth 4 Orangutans website soon along with the Sumatran Orangutan Conservation Programme (SOCP) website. So stay tuned if you are keen on donating some time towards our project!
  • Tila, Dek Nong and Leuser at the Quarantine centre will be having their cages fully renovated in the upcoming months. Some of the metal work has been corroded and needs re-welding and repairing. A good chance to move the animals and do a major renovation rescue.
  • As a starting baseline study, from 21 to 25 November 2013 the Orangutan Haven area at Sibolangit was visited by Mistar Kamsi and Bas van Balen for an ornithological survey. Visit the amazing photographic gallery of the species here: Baseline Ornithological Study
