Extremely Rare Albino Orangutan Rescued From Village Where It Is Kept In Cage

There are many animals to be born with unique features. These are unbelievable, making them outstanding in their colony. Some characteristics even put these animals into disadvantaged situations, easily spotted by predators, for instance.

It’s sad but true that some people are over-curious about these rare animals. They want to keep them for your own. Illegally hold these poor creatures.

The extremely rare female albino orangutan in this story is an example. She was kept in a cage by the local residents in the Tanggirang village, Kapuas Hulub for two days.

Luckily, she was rescued by the Borneo Orangutan Survival Foundation (BOS), with the help of the Central Kalimantan BKSDA.

BOS is a non-profit organization in Indonesia. It was founded in 1991 with the aim to conserve the Bornean orangutan and its habitat. BOS has worked with local communities to achieve their goals. Currently, the organization has 400 staff members who are taking care of 750 orangutans.

The 5-year-old female ape that the organization has rescued recently is extremely special. It’s an albino. White-haired and blue-eyed.

“Orangutans are rare, and an albino orangutan is even rarer,” Nico Hermanu, a spokesman for the Borneo Orangutan Survival Foundation, told AFP. “Since BOSF was founded 25 years ago, we had never before taken in an albino orangutan at our rehabilitation centre.”

Thankfully, the albino orangutan is doing pretty good now. BOS has come at the right time and brought her out of the cage.

Orangutans are endemic to the Indonesian islands of Borneo and Sumatra. They inhabit the lush rainforests that tragically, have declined by over 80% over the past 2 decades.
