SALAT NUSA ISLAND INAUGURATION
Salat Nusa Island, a pristine forest area located in Pulang Pisau Regency, Central Kalimantan, officially became operational in 2016 as our main pre-release and sanctuary island, which is an amazing achievement for orangutan conservation! Twelve rehabilitated orangutans were moved from Nyaru Menteng to the Salat Nusa Island area and we are delighted to report that all are doing very well in their new environment.
With additional support from PT SSMS, the BOS Foundation successfully established partnerships with other stakeholders in the area, including the local government and the people of Pulang Pisau Regency. PT SSMS also provided an additional 1,434 hectares of land on Salat, which will be utilized for our pre-release and sanctuary activities here over the coming year and beyond.
