Alba, the world´s only recorded albino orangutan, is doing great in the forests of Bukit Baka Bukit Raya National Park.
Look at how confident she appears in the forest canopy!
She has also reunited with her old friend, Unyu, who was released there just a few days ago.
It’s undeniable that blue-eyed, white-haired Alba is an icon of orangutan conservation.
But, while it’s easy to single out one animal, you and I know that this is only part of the story.
Orangutans, and many other rainforest species, are facing extinction. The story is complex; the drivers of deforestation are many.
World Wildlife Day reminds us, sadly, that mankind is driving wildlife to extinction at an exponential and horrifying rate.
With this in mind, we have prepared a special video, to highlight the importance of orangutans for the conservation of Borneo’s wildlife.
Bringing you these updates on our work and stories on important wildlife topics is just one way we are playing our part.
Thank you, Mark, for reading and sharing our stories.
For the future of orangutans,
Dr. Jamartin Sihite
