NOVI REACHES HIS FIRST TREE AND GOES WITH LECI WHO HAVE WAITED FOR HIM

This morning, on November 3rd, 2018 the Director of Biodiversity Conservation, drh. Indra Exploitasia, M.Sc, began the release of two orangutans from COP Borneo rehabilitation center. Orangutan conservation in Berau has been supported by many stakeholders, especially the local community. We involved locals to create a traditional ceremony before beginning the release process.

The difficulty of going through the low tide of the Kelay river and the heavy of the transport cage did not ruin the enthusiasm of our APE Guardian team. There was a silence when Mr. Sunandar Trigunajasa, head of the Natural Resources Agency (BKSDA) East Kalimantan, opened a cage carrying Leci. Only in seconds, Leci runs and climbs the tree. 100m later, he stopped between forest canopies.

Then the second cage was opened by Mr. Ahmad Saerozi. Just like Leci, Novi ran and immediately climbed a tree, following Leci. Shortly thereafter, Leci and Novi continued their journey. The monitoring team quietly followed both of them.

“The process was so fast. Luckily the APE Guardian team had practiced enough before. Two orangutans with different backgrounds, but the same rehabilitation period, will have a different reaction to nature”, said Reza Kurniawan, APE Guardian captain.

Novi had been kept as a pet in Kongbeng, East Kalimantan. Meanwhile, Leci were wild but young when he arrived. They were expected to carry out their functions in the forest. Orangutans are the best forest farmer ever. The wide roaming of orangutans and their diversity of food makes orangutans have an important role in nature. (IND)

NOVI MERAIH POHON PERTAMANYA DAN PERGI BERSAMA LECI YANG SUDAH MENUNGGU
Pagi ini, 3 November 2018 Direktur Konservasi Keanekaragaman Hayati, drh. Indra Exploitasia, M.Si, memulai pelepasliaran dua orangutan dari pusat rehabilitasi COP Borneo. Konservasi orangutan di Berau mendapat dukungan dari banyak pihak terutama masyarakat sekitar, upacara adat pun mengawali proses pelepasliaran kali ini.

Sulitnya melalui sungai Kelay yang agak surut dan beratnya kandang angkut orangutan tak sedikitpun menyurutkan semangat tim APE Guardian. Suasana hening saat Sunandar Trigunajasa, kepala Balai KSDA Kalimantan Timur membuka kandang angkut orangutan Leci. Hanya hitungan detik, Leci berlari dan memanjat pohonnya. 100m kemudian, dia berhenti di antara kanopi.

Kemudian kandang kedua dibuka oleh Ahmad Saerozi. Sama saja seperti Leci, Novi pun berlari dan langsung memanjat pohon menyusul Leci. Tak lama kemudian, Leci dan Novi melanjutkan perjalanan mereka. Tim monitoring dengan sigap mengikuti mereka berdua.

“Proses tadi begitu cepat. Untung saja tim APE Guardian sudah cukup berlatih sebelumnya. Dua orangutan dengan latar belakang yang berbeda ini, namun masa rehabilitasi yang sama akan menjadi catatan tersendiri.”, ujar Reza Kurniawan, kapten APE Guardian.

Novi yang sebelumnya pernah dipelihara warga Kongbeng, Kalimantan Timur dan Leci yang liar namun berusia muda diharapkan bisa menjalankan fungsi nya di hutan. Orangutan adalah pelaku reboisasi terbaik yang pernah ada. Daya jelajah orangutan dan keanekaragaman makanannyalah yang menjadikan orangutan punya peran penting di alam.

THERE ARE ORANGUTANS IN INDOCOMTECH 2018

This was the first time for Center for Orangutan Protection to participate at the electronic exhibition, Indocomtech at the Jakarta Convention Center, Senayan Jakarta. It all began with the unexpected invitation from the committee which turned out to be an extraordinary excitement. October 31 to November 4, starting at 9:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. Who else made it hillarious … yes Orangufriends, a support group for the Center for Orangutan Protection. Not only in Jakarta, Novi (Orangufriends Padang) also took time to stop after becoming an Animals Warrior volunteer in the tsunami earthquake in Palu, Central Sulawesi.

Only at the COP booth those who wanted to take pictures with orangutans are allowed. There were even 4 orangutans that could accompany you with your best style. There were also prizes for those who then upload to social media by tagging @orangutan_cop on Instagram. It was exciting! Of course, these orangutan dolls will stay silent, they won’t bite you or transmit their disease to you.

Do you still remember the campaign Orangutan is not a toy right? Yes, we share the same DNA with orangutans at 97%. If you have the flu, of course the orangutan can catch it from you so he becomes a cold. What if the opposite? Yes, if the orangutan is exposed to hepatitis, you can also get hepatitis from him. Say no photos with orangutans! Except for stuffed orangutans at the Indocomtech COP booth. (EBO)

ADA ORANGUTAN DI INDOCOMTECH 2018
Ini adalah keikutsertaan Centre for Orangutan Protection yang pertama kali di acara pameran elektronik, Indocomtech di Jakarta Convention Center, Senayan Jakarta. Ini juga karena undangan dari panitia yang tak disangka ternyata menjadi keseruan luar biasa. 31 Oktober hingga 4 November mulai dari jam 09.00 pagi hingga 10.00 malam. Siapa lagi yang bikin ramai… ya orangufriends, kelompok pendukung Centre for Orangutan Protection. Tidak hanya yang di Jakarta loh, Novi (Orangufriends Padang) juga menyempatkan diri mampir usai menjadi relawan Animals Warrior di gempa tsunami Palu, Sulawesi Tengah.

Hanya di booth nya COP loh, untuk kamu yang ingin berfoto bersama dengan orangutan diperbolehkan. Bahkan ada 4 orangutan yang bisa menemani kamu dengan gaya terbaikmu. Ada hadiahnya juga untuk kamu yang lalu mengunggah ke media sosialmu dengan mencolek @orangutan_cop di instagram. Seru kan! Tentu saja, boneka orangutan ini akan diam saja, tidak akan mengigit kamu ataupun menularkan penyakit ke kamu.

Masih ingat kampanye Orangutan Bukan Mainan kan? Ya, kita berbagi DNA yang sama dengan orangutan sebesar 97%. Jika kamu flu, tentu saja orangutan bisa tertular dari kamu sehingga dia menjadi flu. Bagaimana jika sebaliknya? Ya, jika orangutan tersebut terkena hepatitis, kamu pun bisa tertular hepatitis darinya. Katakan tidak foto dengan orangutan ya! Kecuali boneka orangutan di booth COP Indocomtech.

RELEASING NOVI AND LECI IN THIS NOVEMBER

There was no dramatic moment when the former rehab orangutans of COP Borneo were released. No orangutan hugged his nurse to say goodbye. Nor does anyone come down to give a flower as orangutans do to conservation experts. Everything was fast and spontaneously. When we release orangutans from the cage, there are only two possibilities: Jump and climb trees as high as possible and then disappear or attack people.

November 3rd is a thrilling day for the Center for Orangutan Protection family. This was our second orangutan release after a year earlier. In 2017, we released orangutan from the zoo, named Oki. Oki managed to make an achievement as an orangutan who used to live behind bars and could go back wild. Now, Novi and Leci also get their chance to return to their habitat.

Novi, previously kept under a house with chains around his neck. In April 2015, Novi was rescued from Kongbeng, East Kalimantan. His body was so small because of lack of nutrition, as he did not eat proper food for orangutans. At that time, Novi made friends with dogs.

While Leci is a wild agile orangutan who lost his mother in the middle of a field. How were Novi and Leci when their cage doors were lifted? (IND)

MELEPAS NOVI DAN LECI DI AWAL NOVEMBER
Tidak ada momen yang dramatis pada saat orangutan mantan pusat rehabilitasi COP Borneo dilepasliarkan. Tidak ada orangutan yang memeluk perawatnya untuk berpamitan. Pun tidak ada yang turun memberikan sekuntum bunga seperti yang dilakukan orangutan ke para pakar konservasi. Semuanya akan berlangsung cepat dan waspada. Orangutan yang dilepaskan dari kandang, kemungkinannya hanya dua. Langsung melompat dan memanjat pohon setinggi mungkin dan lalu menghilang atau menyerang orang – orang.

3 November menjadi hari yang mendebarkan keluarga Centre for Orangutan Protection. Walaupun ini adalah pelepasliaran orangutan kedua setelah setahun sebelumnya, orangutan mantan dari kebun binatang berhasil dilepasliarkan. Orangutan Oki namanya. Oki berhasil mengukir prestasi sebagai orangutan yang terbiasa tinggal dibalik jeruji besi dan bisa kembali liar. Kini, orangutan Novi dan Leci mendapatkan kesempatannya untuk kembali ke habitatnya.

Novi, orangutan yang dipelihara di bawah kolong rumah dengan rantai yang selalu mengalungi lehernya hingga meninggalkan bekas akan mendapatkan kebebasannya. April 2015, Novi diselamatkan dari Kongbeng, Kalimantan Timur. Tubuhnya kecil karena kurang gizi, dia dipelihara dengan makan makanan yang bukan makanannya. Saat itu, Novi bertemankan anjing.

Sementara Leci, adalah orangutan lincah nan liar yang kehilangan induknya di tengah ladang buah. Bagaimana Novi dan Leci saat pintu kandang diangkat?
