Let’s save our orang utan!

(in Bahasa and English)

Panda, adalah hewan yang paling menggemaskan untuk saya (itulah salah satu alasan mengapa saya pernah bergabung dengan WWF). Hewan lain yang akhir-akhir ini membuat saya jatuh cinta adalah, orang utan. Mereka memiliki banyak kemiripan dengan manusia. Mereka menangis saat bayi dan bisa tantrum saat toddler, persis seperti manusia. Namun yang menyedihkan adalah mereka sudah hampir punah 😦 Yang sebagian besar karena ulah kita. Mereka dibunuh untuk diambil dagingnya atau dijadikan aksesoris dan tempat tinggalnya dibabat dengan cara yang semena-mena, illegal logging.

Oleh karena itu, ketika ada program untuk mengadopsi orang utan, saya pun sangat tertarik untuk ikut. Adopsi disini bukan berarti kita benar-benar mengadopsi dan membawa mereka untuk ke rumah kita, karena toh lingkungan rumah kita pasti tidak cocok untuk mereka. Namun, jika kita mengadopsi, maka kita membantu para orang utan yang sudah kehilangan rumah mereka, terpisah dari keluarganya, atau sudah mengalami peristiwa yang menyakitkan, untuk kembali diajarkan dan dikembalikan ke habitat aslinya. Untuk lebih jelasnya, bisa dilihat disini.

Saya sendiri (dengan dibantu adik saya, Dito, yang juga menyumbang) sudah mengadopsi seekor bayi orang utan bernama Henrik

Panda, is the most adorable animal to me (that’s one reason why I’ve joined the WWF). Other animals that have recently made ​​me fall in love is, an orangutan. They have a lot similarity with humans. They cry when baby and can tantrums when toddler as well, , just like humans. But the sad thing is they’re almost extinct Its mostly caused by us. They are killed for meat or used as a accessories, their home also diminished by illegal logging.

Therefore, when there is a program to adopt an orangutan, I was very interested to participate. Adoption here does not mean we actually adopt and bring them to our home, because of course home environment is not suitable for them. However, if we adopt, we help the orangutans who have lost their homes, separated from their families, or have experienced a painful event, to be taught again and returned to their natural habitat.

 I myself (with the help of my brother , Dito, which also donate) have adopted a baby orang utan named Henrik

Lucu ya? Walaupun masih bayi seperti ini, dia sudah melalui peristiwa tidak menyenangkan dalam hidupnya, berikut ini kisahnya :

Funny huh? While still a baby like this, he’s been through an unpleasant event in his life, there is his story :

Henrik, a 1.5 years old orangutan, was rescued from a forest near a plantation and land-cleared area. He was thought to be abandoned by his mother or be left behind. Henrik was found by a couple of boar hunters on the skirt of a forest in Kasongan area. At the time, he was nearly be-ing bitten by their hunting dogs, but rescued and taken care of.

First time arrived, Henrik was placed in the Small Group. However due to his playful nature and ten-dency to pick on others in the group, Henrik was then removed to the Big Group, along with other orangutans more closely similar to his ability and behaviour.

In the Big Group, Henrik was quick to adapt. He was very ac-tive to climb trees and play with his friends at Forest school 1 in the nursery group. Henrik’s progress during in the Big Group (For Babies) has been very good. He now weighs 7.65 kilograms.

Everytime Henrik has to leave for school or to go home, he always does it by holding hands with Bejo, Lima, Chili and other friends.

Henrik was just starting to learn and build nests. He uses them as temporary hammock from time to time.

Henrik’s favourite diet is the tip of Ehang leaves and its sweet fruits.

Nah, bagaimana saya tidak tersentuh melihat Hendrik dan teman-temannya yang lain. Untuk teman-teman yang mau juga mengadopsi, bisa kesini, bisa dijadikan hadiah atau bisa juga meneruskan adopsi Henrik setelah saya (karena saya hanya mengadopsi 3 bulan). Yuk, sama-sama berbuat hal positif, sekecil apapun itu. Have a nice day!

Well, how did I am not touched to see Hendrik and his other friends. For you who would also want to adopt, you can go to here, you can used as gifts or can also continued Henrik adoption after me (since I just adopted 3 months). Let’s get together to do something positive, no matter how small it is. Have a nice day!
