UNTUNG’S NEST NEAR THE APE GUARDIAN CAMP

A peaceful afternoon was struck by the sound of something falling in the bathroom. All reflexes immediately tried to look to find out where the sound came from. The APE Guardian team found a messy bathroom, the shower was no longer in place and the shampoo condition was running out. Widi and Wan’s wardrobe opened with contents littered with the smell of very stinging dirt from the bedroom.

“Oh, my God! This must be the orangutans! ” While looking for the orangutan that has made a chaotic afternoon in the monitoring camp, Reza continued to sniff out the existence of orangutans. It was getting dark, the team was busy turning on the generator set. When we let our guard down, the orangutans went back into the kitchen by gouging wood vents. The condition of the kitchen is really like a broken ship. All food supplies are scattered and run out. Chicken eggshells are on the bed of the lower room, it seems the perpetrator is satisfied to ravage the kitchen and enjoy eggs while on the mattress. The smell of dirt and urine is everywhere. And … Untung looking at us from the tree with satisfaction!

Upset and angry! The team began to hush Untung away. But it seems that Untung still wants to play with us. That night, he made a simple nest, just above the hut. We were busy cleaning and tidying the camp. Arghhh … but the smell of the male orangutan filled the camp. Nobody fell asleep … a frustrating day. 

Untung is an orangutan from a zoo. His fingers are not perfect, but does not mean preventing him from becoming a wild orangutan. Untung managed to survive and become an ex-rehabilitation orangutan. His presence in the destruction this time seemed to be a form of resentment. “Well, Untung, soon we will completely disappear from you. Good luck untung! ” (EBO)

SARANG UNTUNG DEKAT CAMP APE GUARDIAN

Siang hari yang damai dikejutkan suara sesuatu terjatuh di kamar mandi. Refleks semuanya langsung mencoba melihat untuk mencari tahu asal suara. Tim APE Guardian menemukan kamar mandi yang berantakan, alat mandi tak lagi di tempatnya dan kondisi shampo terbuka habis. Lemari baju Widi dan Wan terbuka dengan isi yang berserakan dengan bau kotoran yang sangat menyengat dari kamar tidur.

“Ya … Tuhan! Ini pasti ulah orangutan!”. Sambil mencari-cari sosok orangutan pelaku kekacauan di camp monitoring, Reza terus mengendus keberadaan orangutan. Hari mulai gelap, tim sibuk menyalakan genset. Saat kami lengah, kembali orangutan masuk ke dapur dengan mencongkel kayu lubang angin. Kondisi dapur benar-benar seperti kapal pecah. Seluruh persediaan makanan berhamburan dan habis. Kulit telur ayam berada di atas kasur kamar bawah, sepertinya si pelaku dengan puas memporak-porandakan dapur dan menikmati telur sembari di atas kasur. Bau kotoran dan air seni dimana-mana. Dan… Untung memandang kami dari atas pohon dengan puas!

Kesal dan marah! Tim mulai mengusir Untung. Namun sepertinya Untung masih ingin mempermainkan kami. Malam itu, dia membuat sarang ala kadarnya, tepat di atas pondok. Kami pun sibuk membersihkan dan merapikan camp. Arghhh… tapi bau orangutan jantan Untung memenuhi camp. Tak seorang pun tertidur… hari yang mengesalkan.

Orangutan Untung adalah orangutan dari kebun binatang. Jari-jari Untung yang tak sempurna, bukan berarti menghambatnya menjadi orangutan liar. Untung berhasil bertahan dan menjadi orangutan ex-rehabilitasi. Kehadirannya dalam perusakan kali ini sepertinya sebagai bentuk kekesalannya. “Baiklah Untung, tak lama lagi kami akan benar-benar menghilang dari hadapanmu. Goodluck Untung!”. (REZ)
