It's official! Lomon's going home! In 2007 the BBC were filming 'Orangutan Diary' at Nyaru Menteng and one of the orphans featured was Lomon. He had been kept in a box for several years, was frail and traumatised, also for some reason his 'owner' had chosen to shave his head.
Looking at the photos, it's hard to believe it's the same chap, but now, after nine years of rehabilitation, Lomon is about to make history by being the 200th Orangutan to be released back to the wild by BOS F!
Thank you so much for your support, and stay tuned for more info on the eleven other Orangutans, who are due to be released at the same time as Lomon! Exciting times! http://eepurl.com/bXs2mH
The Earth is what we all have in common, so let's cherish and protect it, for their sakes and our own. These little characters all deserve a bright future living free as nature intended, and with every like, share and comment you are helping to achieve that goal. Thank you!
