This is the moment our team cut Japik free from the chain that had been tight around her neck for two long years - what an amazing feeling that must have been (for both Japik and our rescue team!). Japik is now being cared for at our orangutan rescue and rehabilitation centre in West Borneo. Our immediate priority is to check her for any ailments or diseases while she is in quarantine and work to improve her overall health and wellbeing. Having lived for so long in such shocking conditions, we're amazed that she's even alive. Let’s hope this means she has a strong constitution and an equally strong will to survive.
