Orangutan Rehabilitation and Release Program
Orangutang (Pongo pygmaeus) rehabilitering og release-programmet var FNPF første Wildlife Conservation projekt, da organisationen blev grundlagt i 1997. I 1998, FNPF blev inviteret af parken ledelsen til at styre de tre orangutang rehabilitering stillinger i Tanjung Puting National Park, placeret på Tanjung Harapan, Pondok Tanggui og Camp Leaky.

Mellem 1997 og 2002, FNPF successfully rehabilitated and released 20 orangutans into the wild primarily from the post at Pondok Tanggui. The project was highly successful, and after all of the orangutans that were released survived for a long period of time, blev klart kvaliteten af ​​vores program.

I 2002, FNPF konkluderede sin Orangutang rehabilitering og frigivelse program eftersom nye regler begrænser frigivelsen af ​​orangutanger, der har været i kontakt med mennesker i et område med en vild befolkningen for at mindske spredningen af ​​sygdommen.

Orangutan Rescue and Translocation Project
Siden 2002, vores arbejde med orangutanger har bestået af rednings-og translokation af vilde orangutanger fra lande uden for nationalparken (fra jord, palm oil plantations or villages), to a safe and protected area such as Tanjung Puting National Park or Lamandau Reserve. I 2010, we rescued two orangutans from a palm oil plantation (Se vores Nyhed for 3. og 4. kvartal 2010).

The rescue and translocation project was only made possible after a series of community development and education programs were run in the area; fostering good relationships with the village communities around the park. Ved at gøre community-medlemmer mere opmærksomme på truslen mod orangutang og dens levested, de er blevet mere villige til at støtte FNPF arbejde og kontakt til vores program, når de finder en vild orangutang stedet for at dræbe dem, som de ville enhver anden skadedyr.

Sun Bear Rescue Rehabilitation, and Release
Beside orangutans, we have also rehabilitated and released a sun bear (Helarctos malayanus) that was brought in by a tourist who found it at a local home in 2003.

I 2008, FNPF også reddet en sol bjørn fra en fælde, der blev sat i parken. (Klik her for at læse mere om Winki Solen Bear).

Turtle Conservation Project
Vores skildpadde bevarelse projekt er bygget på et system med støtte fra lokalsamfundet, which as agreed to protect a turtle nesting site by the Sungai Cabang park. Tidligere, the turtle eggs were not only at risk of being taken by natural predators like wild boars, but they were also being collected by villagers. But with FNPF’s provision of education on food source sustainability and the importance of turtle conservation, folk på Sungai Cabang Village har givet udtryk for en vilje til at beskytte næsten tre kilometer strand. Mellem 2006 og 2007, turtle eggs that were laid on the protected beach were collected by FNPF, relocated to a hatchery that was run in the village, and finally released back into the wild.

With approximately 2,000 hatchlings reintroduced to the wild by the end of 2007, the program was viewed as a great success. But unfortunately, due to a lack of funds, the turtle conservation project has been put on hold. (We need approximately $7,500 annually to run the project).

Other Wildlife
Ud over vores konkrete projekter, der er skræddersyet til de enkelte arter, FNPF also makes an effort to help any wildlife that we are able to rehabilitate, release, and protect in the park. Efter at være blevet holdt ulovligt i fangenskab eller vandre på en plantage eller farm, all sorts of wildlife finds itself in need of a more secure place to live and breed.

This work was possible thanks to our donors, including the Humane Society International (Australien).
