Borneo Orangutan Survival Foundation

Borneo Orangutan Survival Foundation

The BOS Nyaru Menteng Orangutan Rescue Center was founded in 1999 by Lone Droscher Nielsen (who is now retired) and is managed by the Borneo Orangutan Survival Foundation. It is home to around 450 orphaned and displaced orangutans.

Nyaru Menteng is located just outside the capital city of Palangka Raya in the Province of Central Kalimantan in Indonesian Borneo. Since its humble beginnings, the center has grown into the largest orangutan conservation facility in the world— with numerous cages, clinics, islands, vehicles and training forests— and hundreds of dedicated professional staff. The current manager of the center is Pak Denny, who— along with his amazing team— has overseen the most remarkable orangutan release program in history.
