“The Great Ape Escape”, coming soon on BBC 2!

Leonora and her son Lamar, with 19 other orangutans went back home to their natural habitat in Bukit Batikap Conservation Forest in November 2012. Before the release, they had completed the rehabilitation process in Nyaru Menteng and inhabited the pre-release Island where they underwent the final phase of rehabilitation process.

Now they live in their true home and put the skills they have learnt at the rehabilitation center to use!


Watch the challenging, yet touching reintroduction process in “The Great Ape Escape” on BBC 2, October 4 2013, 9 PM GMT.
