These are just a few of the faces of orangutan orphans who are missing their Mums.
They are just a few of the more than 1,000 orphaned and displaced orangutans in rescue and rehabilitation centres across Indonesia. That's a lot of missing orangutan mothers!
The orangutans’ rainforest home is literally being wiped out leaving hundreds of helpless orangutans with nowhere to go and every year more and more orangutan mothers are being killed.
This Mother’s Day we are asking groups and individuals all around the world to participate in a Missing Orangutans Mothers campaign by holding their own events to raise awareness and funds to help these orphan orangutans. These events can be as elaborate or as simple as you’d like. It’s totally up to you. #MissingOrangutanMothers.
You can donate to help OFI's orphan orangutans at https://orangutanfoundation.org.au/the-cause/ (link in our bio) | If you would like your photo's featured by us please tag your images with #ofi_australia and we will credit you! πŸ’

🍌Orangutans have a unique method for eating bananas. Instead of holding the fruit vertically and peeling down, they find a slit in the peel and pop the whole fruit into their mouth sideways! 🍌 | Image credit: @orangutanfoundationintl | If you would like your photo's featured by us please tag your images with #ofi_australia and we will credit you! πŸ’

Captive Orangutan Jono was a pet until he was confiscated some years ago from his owners in Jakarta by the Indonesian Government. He spent six years at Tegal Alur holding facility for wildlife near Jakarta Airport. During the years he spent there, he grew from a subadult into a fully adult flanged male with cheekpads. On Monday, April 23rd 2018, OFI, cooperating with JAAN and the KSDA agency of the Indonesian government and with the help of Trigana Airlines, flew Jono along with sunbear Buddy, home to Kalimantan (Indonesian Borneo). Jono is a magnificent adult male with a long cape of hair that flows from his arms and swings gracefully when he moves. I am posting a video of Jono leaving his transport cage to enter his newly built enclosure at OFI’s Care Center and Quarantine near Pangkalan Bun in Kalimantan Tengah. I thank OFI Volunteer Philip Stubley for filming this pivotal moment in Jono’s journey home. In the video, Jono has flown from Jakarta Airport across the Java Sea to Pangkalan Bun Airport where his transport cage made the short journey to the Care Center in a pickup truck. In the posted video Jono’s transport cage has been positioned in the entrance of his new enclosure. The transport cage door opens and Jono explodes into the enclosure swinging vigorously. He then settles down and calmly surveys his environment through the bars of the enclosure, finally making a nest with the branches provided. The Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) with Adam Harvey also filmed Jono’s journey home. We all are grateful that the journey from Jakarta went so well, and hope that eventually Jono will find his true place in the forests of his ancestors. The full story of Jono’s journey home is on my twitter account: drbirute@Twitter.com. | If you would like your photo's featured by us please tag your images with #ofi_australia and we will credit you! πŸ’

Today is the day!! Orangutan Jono and Buddy the sun bear are ready to leave Jakarta for OFI's Care Centre in Borneo. Both victims of the illegal wildlife trafficking trade, they are finally going home. OFI's Dr Birute Galdikas will accompany them on the flight to make sure all goes smoothly.
ABC’s Foreign Correspondent will be filming the transfer as a follow up on their episode of The Baby Trade fearuring Jono.
Jono was taken from his mother at a very young age and sold and kept as a pet. He is now a 15-year old fully grown adult male cheek padder, confiscated by Indonesian Government officials after life as an illegal pet 5 years ago. Jono has been locked in a small cell at a government facility in Jakarta ever since. He’s had no quality of life and lived in abysmal conditions.
Sun bear Buddy has no claws. They were pulled out by his captor. He is just over 1 year old and has had a horrific start to life. He was captured to be sold for his body parts. He was rescued just in time!!
Huge thanks to Femke and her team at @jakartaanimalaidnetwork (JAAN) for all your work in making this happen and to Lorinda Jane @palmoilinvestigations who launched a gofundme page and raised the needed funds to pay for Jono and Buddy's relocation costs.
Please donate to help us with Jono’s ongoing care at http://orangutanfoundation.org.au/our-work/ofi-care-centre-and-quarantine/ (link in bio)
