After 198 days Dennis is leaving Cikananga. In the 7 months with us he clearly made great progress and now all paperwork is ready, he can be transferred back home to Sumatra, to the SOCP orangutan rehabilitation Center where he will integrate in a group of similar Orangutans, and later on hopefully back in to the wild. #savedennis
He will return to his motherland. It’s heartbreaking that his mum is no longer there but he will be safe in the hands of the great SOCP team!
Dennis started his long journey from Cikananga Wildlife Center to Sumatra, to the SOCP orangutan rehabilitation Center. He will go first by car to Jakarta airport together with our vet Alia, who took care of Dennis since he arrived in Cikananga. In Jakarta the JAAN team will stand ready to help us with all the paper work at the cargo and airport quarantine.
Bye bye Dennis! We will miss you, but we are so happy that you return home and that you soon will play with other orangutans and that you will return to your natural habitat:-)
Thanks JAAN and SOCP for all your great support to Dennis and your great help to make this possible for him!
