Orangutan rescue

This series of photos show Hardi and the COP team negotiating with the palm oil employee (second from right) for the release of an approx. three year old orangutan recently orphaned when its mother was killed.

One photo shows the orangutan on the ground where its forest home once stood. Another photo
shows the orangutan in a temporary crate whilst waiting a short while for the Borneo Orangutan Survival Foundation to arrive and take this
orangutan to their excellent rescue centre.
