A visit to Lamandau River Wildlife Reserve by Wawan
'I went to Camp Siswoyo with Pak Tigor (manager of Orangutan Rescue and Release programme) to see wounded orangutan named Pablo. Based on field staff's information he had fought in the jungle but no ones know whom with, whether other orangutan or another animal.
For several day before Pak Tigor already gave him medicines. I think his wounds are already in process to recover and is going to cure so no worry with this. I advised the staff to keep the wound clean and on what treatment to give. Hopefully, in maybe one or two weeks, Pablo will be cured and could be free from the cage.
After seeing Pablo then I go Camp Gemini, our main camp, to see Aan in her new enclosure. Because Aan is blind she naturally seems worried when she hears someone approach.
I also saw female orangutan, Melon, and her child at Camp Gemini, who came to see what was happening.'
Thank you Wawan for the beautiful photos.
