APE DEFENDER SAVED ONE BABY ORANGUTAN

Finally, the APE Defender team with the Berau BKSDA succeeded in rescuing a female orangutan in the village of Long Beliu, East Kalimantan. This 1-2 year old baby has been under illegal captive of a resident since November 2018. According to the resident, the small orangutan was found on the roadside of Wahau when crossing the road alone. Feeling sorry, this baby orangutan was brought home and kept in a 1.5 x 1 meter wooden cage.

In April, July and August 2017, APE Defender has carried out translocation of adult male orangutans entering community palm oil plantations and eating palm oil seedlings. Other male orangutans were also found entering residents’ settlements and the last one was the orangutan with a wounded head was found on the roadside of the Muara Wahau, East Kalimantan.

What happened along the Muara Wahau road that forced the orangutans who usually avoid busy road to be there? COP’s fast-moving team to protect habitats as orangutan homes do not just remain silent. “Maybe there is something wrong with the habitat, so the orangutans are pushed into the settlements or plantations. Orangutans are explorers. They will continue to move and make a nest during the day and evening to rest. With instincts they look for food to survive.”

APE DEFENDER SELAMATKAN SATU BAYI ORANGUTAN
Akhirnya, tim APE Defender bersama BKSDA Berau berhasil menyelamatkan satu anak orangutan betina di kampung Long Beliu, Kalimantan Timur. Bayi berusia 1-2 tahun ini berada dalam pemeliharaan ilegal seorang warga sejak November 2018 yang lalu. Menurutnya, orangutan kecil tersebut ditemukan di pinggir jalan poros Wahau saat menyebrang jalan sendirian. Karena merasa kasihan, orangutan yang masih bayi ini dibawa pulang ke rumah dan dipelihara di kandang kayu berukuran 1,5 x 1 meter.

Pada April, Juli dan Agustus 2017, APE Defender telah melakukan translokasi orangutan jantan dewasa yang memasuki perkebunan kelapa sawit warga dan memakan bibit sawit. Orangutan jantan lainnya juga ditemukan memasuki pemukiman warga dan terakhir orangutan dengan kepala terluka ditemukan di pinggir jalan poros Muara Wahau, Kalimantan Timur.

Apa yang terjadi sepanjang jalan Muara Wahau ini, hingga orangutan berada di jalan yang biasanya mereka hindari karena ramainya kendaraan melintas? Tim gerak cepat COP untuk perlindungan habitat sebagai rumah orangutan tak hanya tinggal diam. “Mungkin ada yang salah dengan habitatnya, sehingga orangutan terdesak masuk ke pemukiman ataupun perkebunan. Orangutan adalah satwa penjelajah. Dia akan terus bergerak dan membuat sarang saat siang maupun sore hari untuk istirahatnya. Dengan nalurinya dia mencari makanan untuk bertahan hidup.”.

LET’S HELP JOJO NOT TO CRY AGAIN

Here he is, the noisy Jojo. Jojo always cried hysterically when he could not attend the forest school class. Last Saturday morning when the cage door opened, Jojo wanted to get out and go to the forest school. Pity, that day was not Jojo’s turn to join forest school.

Jojo cried hard, rolling in the cage. He was angry because he was not invited to forest school. Because the tears didn’t stop, Wety persuaded Jojo to be quiet. And when the animal keeper reopened the cage, Jojo stopped crying at once. Immediately he came out and grabbed the keeper’s body. Finally we brought Jojo to the forest school.

Arriving at the location of the forest school, Jojo soon climbed through the tree roots. Every now and then he looked at the keeper from above. He looked very happy to be able to play at the forest school area. “Unfortunately, the forest school schedule must still be implemented because of the limited number of animal keepers at Borneo COP,” said Wety Rupiana, coordinator of the only orangutan rehabilitation center established by Indonesian youths.

YUK, BANTU JOJO TIDAK MENANGIS LAGI
Ini dia, si berisik Jojo. Jojo selalu menangis histeris ketika tidak bisa ikut kelas sekolah hutan. Sabtu pagi kemarin ketika pintu kandang terbuka, Jojo ingin langsung keluar dan berangkat ke sekolah hutan. Kasian, hari itu bukan giliran Jojo masuk sekolah hutan.

Jojo menangis sejadi-jadinya, guling-guling di kandang. Dia marah karena tidak diajak ke sekolah hutan. Karena tangisnya tidak berhenti, Wety mengajak Jojo untuk diam. Dan ketika animal keeper membuka kembali kandang, Jojo langsung menghentikan tangisannya. Segera dia keluar dan meraih badan keeper. Akhirnya Jojo pun kami bawa ke sekolah hutan.

Sesampai di lokasi sekolah hutan, Jojo langsung naik melalui akar pohon. Sesekali melihat keeper dari atas. Dia terlihat sangat bahagia bisa bermain di lokasi sekolah hutan. “Sayang, jadwal sekolah hutan tetap harus diberlakukan karena terbatasan jumlah animal keeper di COP Borneo.”, ujar Wety Rupiana, kordinator satu-satunya pusat rehabilitasi orangutan yang didirikan putra-putri Indonesia.

POPI TAKES A NAP

Are you missing Popi? Popi is an orangutan who joined the COP Borneo orangutan rehabilitation center since she was born. Can you imagine how small and weak she was at that time? And thanks to your support, COP Borneo employs a special baby sitter to take care of her. Thankfully, Popi was able to go through her days well. Even her weight is now 8 kg.

Little Popi is increasingly active in the forest school class. Popi is often seen playing alone at the root of trees. However, when Bonti and Happi were busy making a nest, Popi slowly approached them. When Popi was stunned to pay attention to Bonti and Happi who were busy making nests, then Wety was busy recording what Popi was doing. Wety, the baby sitter who is now the coordinator of the COP Borneo rehabilitation center just like a mother to Popi. A mother who is still worried when her foster children are out of reach, in the trees. What are you afraid of? “Fear of Popi might fall if she chose wrong root or branch to move,” said Wety Rupiana.

Well, after Bonti and Happi’s nest were done, Popi approached them closer. Popi takes a break in their nest. “Take a nap.” (EBO)

POPI NUMPANG TIDUR SIANG
Rindu dengan Popi? Popi adalah orangutan yang masuk pusat rehabilitasi orangutan COP Borneo saat tali pusarnya baru saja lepas. Bisa kamu bayangkan, betapa kecil dan lemahnya dia saat itu? Dan berkat dukungan kamu, COP Borneo mempekerjakan satu orang baby sitter khusus untuk merawatnya. Syukurlah, Popi bisa melalui hari-harinya dengan baik, bahkan berat badannya sekarang 8 kg.

Si kecil Popi semakin aktif di kelas sekolah hutan. Popi terlihat sering bermain sendiri di akar pohon. Tapi saat Bonti dan Happi sibuk membuat sarang, Popi pun perlahan mendekati mereka. Jika Popi terpaku memperhatikan Bonti dan Happi yang sibuk membuat sarang, maka Wety pun sibuk mencatat apa yang dilakukan Popi. Wety, baby sitter yang kini menjadi kordinator pusat rehabilitasi COP Borneo seperti ibu Popi yang masih kawatir saat anak asuhnya di luar jangkauan, di atas pohon. Takut apa ya? “Takut Popi jatuh karena salah memilih akar ataupun dahan untuk berpindah.”, ujar Wety Rupiana.

Nah, usai sarang yang dibuat Bonti dan Happi jadi. Popi pun semakin mendekati mereka. Popi ikut istirahat di sarang buatan mereka. “Numpang tidur siang.” (WET)
