When a large orangutan named Boncel was spotted in a person's garden in Borneo, International Animal Rescue teamed up with the Natural Resources Conservation Department to transport him to a safer place. Because Bornean orangutans are critically endangered, efforts to rescue, rehabilitate or relocate them are crucial. It wasn't easy and it wasn't quick, but these hardworking rescuers managed to move Boncel to a large forest where he can thrive. We hope the big guy enjoys his new home!
