Jamartin Sihite (Indonesia) is the CEO at Borneo Orangutan Survival Foundation. Following a decade of being unable to release rehabilitated orangutans due to the difficulties in finding suitable and secure forest areas, in 2012 we overcame this significant challenge and commenced intensive preparations for our orangutan reintroduction programs in both East and Central Kalimantan. Since that time, the BOS Foundation has reintroduced 167 orangutans back to natural habitat with plans to reintroduce the remainder of our captive rehabilitated population over the coming years. Conservation efforts do not stop after release and the BOS Foundation continues to monitor the newly released orangutans for a minimum of one year to ensure their adaptation. Data recorded on the orangutans behavior post-release is employed to maximize reintroduction success rates, intervene where necessary and improve our rehabilitation program and practices.
