Orangutan Rescue: Indonesia Wild Fires

IFAW Emergency Relief worker Jennifer Miller is currently in Borneo supporting the Borneo Orangutan Survival Foundation (BOS) and their local team of rescuers.  BOS and IFAW are working together to assist with animal rescue operations in response to man-made forest fires that have escalated to a disaster level on both Borneo and Sumatra islands. The fires are threatening the livelihood of neighboring farms as well as the lives of many endangered species that inhabit the dense jungles, including the endangered orangutan. When time and technology permit, Jennifer is posting updates here on the animal rescue blog.
