Hooray for Hope!
A few days ago we shared the news about an orangutan and her baby that were saved from being tortured by local hunters in Indonesia. After being rescued, it was discovered that there were 74 air rifle bullets and sharp blades embedded in her body.
The 30-year-old orangutan, who has been given the name Hope, survived through her surgery. Her baby, unfortunately, did not survive. The chief of Aceh Conservation Agency said, as quoted by NST,
“Hope is getting better, she’s starting to eat.”

[Breaking News] Today at Sumatran Orangutan Conservation Programme (SOCP) we conduct medical check to a critical orangutan named "Hope" after a tragic rescue by the team of Orangutan Information Centre and BKSDA Aceh from Subulussalam city – Aceh Province. From the medical check, sadly we found 74 air riffle bullets on her body. The more heartbreaking it made her eyes damaged and totally blind. Some serious bone fracture also found in all hands and legs. According to our vet, 'Hope" will need a long time care and recovery treatment. Especially for her mental rehabilitation since we know this adult female orangutan just lost her little baby while she's still giving breast feeding. Unfortunately the baby took his last breath on the way to the quarantine center yesterday, due to serious traumatic and malnourished condition. Now 'Hope' is still under the care of our Vet team in the isolation area. Hopefully 'Hope' will get better soon. Stay updated with us! . .
