Breaking! Incredible Rescue Of An Endangered Sumatran Orangutan That Was Released Back Into The Wild On July 4th

Some uplifting news happened this weekend when a 13-year-old female Sumatran Orangutan was released back into the wild in North Sumatra on July 4th.

The orangutan, named Maria, was rescued by the North Sumatra KSDA Center (BBKSDASU) and Orangutan Information Center (OIC) on June 18th in Bukit Mas Village, Besitang District, Langkat Regency.

According to a statement, the female orangutan was rescued five times before and relocated to safer locations, but this rescue was different, Maria was found suffering from a medical condition that required intensive care. She was then transferred to the Sumatran Orangutan Quarantine and Rehabilitation Center.

Efforts to release Maria this time required a five-hour boat trip to her new home which is deeper in the woods to deter her from returning to residential areas.

Described as a “unique wild orangutan,” it was important to strategically release Maria in a safer location so that she can have the chance to survive and reproduce.

In a sign of the times, and an attempt to stop the spread of disease, officers involved in the release had to be free of COVID-19. During her 14-day quarantine, Maria also tested negative for COVID-19 before she could be relocated.

Thanks to North Sumatra KSDA Center (BBKSDASU) and Orangutan Information Center (OIC) for your amazing work.
