Explanation by our Board member Laurent Devalet on pandemics and the impact of deforestation on them


Due to Covid-19, most of the events in the first half of the year are cancelled throughout the country. This has a significant impact on our finances, as we only have your donations available to support our partners during this time, and unfortunately at a time when we are receiving urgent calls for help from our partner projects.

Due to travel restrictions and the fear of falling ill far away from home, our partners can no longer rely on international volunteers to manage the work in the centres. This work, e.g. feeding the animals and enrichment, but also cleaning the enclosures and medical care, must now be carried out by additional professional staff who have to be paid extra. The volunteers were also an important support for the stations with their financial contributions. These incomes are now lacking and the rescue stations now have difficulties to pay their staff. As the other supporters worldwide currently have hardly any stands either and therefore receive fewer donations, the financial shortage is becoming even tighter.

We have recently supported the Sintang Orangutan Center, the Tasikoki Wildlife Center, the Wanicare Foundation as well as Borneo Orangutan Survival with a total of 8.500€ after urgent calls for help.

Since we already supported the Sintang Orangutan Center and BOS Mawas with a total of 11.335€ in January of this year, this is unfortunately also our last nest egg. We are dependent on your help! As the crisis threatens to last for several months, further support will be necessary. In order to guarantee the continued existence of the stations, we are therefore more than ever dependent on your support.

End the Cage Age

Out of quarantine, into the socialization camp

There is finally news about our youngest protégé, little Hope. After a felt eternity, her laboratory results have arrived and the suspicion of tuberculosis has not been confirmed. The little one is healthy all around and was finally allowed to leave the quarantine station. A few days ago she was allowed to move to the socialization enclosure, where she will spend the next months or rather years. Here the little one is pepped up and gets to know other fellow sufferers from whom she can hopefully learn. In several months she will hopefully be able to go to the new nursery where she can be prepared for a life in freedom.
We are so happy for little Hope
Of course we will keep you informed about her progress! Thank you for your perseverance and support!

Mistake in our calendar

We were horrified to discover that our calendar contained an error. In the month of December, unfortunately, 2 days were skipped, namely the 16th and 17th of December.

If you want to exchange your calendar for a corrected one, you can of course do so. In this case we ask you to contact us until 28 February by email to our address

We ask you to excuse this mishap.

Donation from Patisserie Hoffmann

In addition to the traditional king's cake with almond cream, they also offer a  cake with apples as well as e version containing their homemade Hoffnella, a delicious homemade hazelnut cream without palm oil.

We would like to thank Patisserie Hoffmann for their support.
