More brutality to orangutans in Indonesian zoos.

Say 'Hello' to Tina. She lives in this dark cage 24/7 with barely enough room to turn around, little food (nothing suitable) and no water.

She is 6 years old and badly malnourished. Her mother died in this same dreadful zoo three years ago.

We are currently doing everything we can to have her transferred immediately, along with a male orangutan in the same bankrupt zoo, to a nearby rescue centre. We obtained approval from the person with the necessary authority, only to learn a few days later another 'official' got involved and stopped the transfer - no reason given.

For the moment I cannot say any more in this Blog, other than we are working on this case every day and will never, ever, give up on Tina and her mate.
