A part of the important work that OFI Canada supports is the rescue and rehabilitation of orphan orangutans at the Orangutan Care Center and Quarantine (OCCQ).
The OCCQ is a special place where orangutan orphans are nurtured until ready to be reintroduced into the wild. Located in Borneo, Indonesia, the center currently cares for more than 300 orangutans and new orphans are received monthly. Orangutan mothers provide around-the clock care for their young for the first six to eight years of life. The orphans at the OCCQ also require constant attention, care and support. Many of them come to the center traumatized, sick, injured and malnourished. Young infants and any that are ailing spend 24- hours a day with a caregiver.
