UBC scientists share experiences with Indonesian orangutans rehabilitation


A British Columbia researcher shares his experiences in returning to Indonesia Jungle School.

Jacqueline Sunderland-Groves spent eight years working with the Borneo Orangutan Survival Foundation, in 1991 to cultivate an orangey and illegally-held orangean rehabilitation need.

"In many of the areas of conflict, the planting of oil palm trees, the burning areas, the recovery of orangutan in areas with habitats disorders," he said.

Sunderland-Groves is currently a scientific researcher at the UBC Faculty of the Wildlife Co-existence of the Forest, offering a lecture on experiences on the foundation of the Beaty Biodiversity Museum in Vancouver on Sunday.

Eight and eight years have been taken to bring an owl to the foundation's "jungle school", when animals are young, after they have come to an interview.

"The baby starts baby, then goes to school in the forest and the forest school level 2," he said. "Between six and eight ages, they are very strong … and therefore natural areas or pre-release islands grow."

The Sunderland-Groves said that they wanted to teach the skills they needed to teach the great school shows to learn to survive in the desert.

This involves raising trees, what foods to eat and how to avoid them, how to build nests nests and how to prevent prey. Staff are taught by example, and young oranguttans help in learning.

According to the International Union for the Conservation of Nature, about 70,000 orangutans remain in Borneo, Sumatra, Indonesia and Malaysia.

Sunderland-Groves said one of the biggest threat to animal habitats, resulting in palms plantings due to soil clearance, resulting in fires and forest fires.

The Foundation has two Indonesian centers with about 550 orangutans. Since 2012, the organization has renowed 378 homeland symmetry of mana in the forest again.

Successful recovery is a survival all year round in a forest, Sunderland-Groves said.

This means that the apes have learned to adapt to all seasons for other vegetation, with less fruit in the forest.

The Foundation combines animals with a radio transmitter to re-use it to control this progress.

Teachers and nurseries have joined the apes, said that each animal has its own personality and characteristics.

"But it's just a glimpse of an owl from the cage and climbing the woods, and knowing that it's the last time in the cage is very good," he said.

While Indonesia is on the other side of the globe, Sunderland-Groves has said it is important to take care of Canadian people about these creatures, because humans share 97 percent of the same DNA.

"From Borneo to British Columbia, we specifically have some problems," said the addition of those areas that cause forests fires and extraction of wood, causing human wildlife conflicts.

"We need to share and protect this planet".

The "school" rehabilitation in Sunderland-Groves is also a series of 10 documents on the Love Land channel.

"Orangutan Jungle School" will be premiered on Sundays at 8:00 p.m. It runs for 10 weeks.
