EBC scientist to share interactive rehabilitation experiences in Indonesia



A University of British Columbia University is distributing her experiences in running "jungle school" in Indonesia, which turn orphaned orangutans back into the wild.

Jacqueline Sunderland-Grovees spent eight years with the Borneo Orangutan Survival Foundation, which established the need for rehabilitation to deal with a large number of orphans and illegal orangutan people.

He said that the much we have done is concentrating on areas of struggle, sowing of oil palm, areas which have been burnt, areas which have been disturbed, but also save the orangutans to save infants in villages.

Sunderland-Grovees, now a research scientist with UBC faculty of Forestry Wildlife Co-existence Lab, is discussing his experience of running the foundation at Vancouver's BT Biodiversity Museum on Sunday.

She took about 6 to 8 years to graduate the Foundation's "Jungle School", when she came to an interview on Friday, according to how small she is when the animals come inside.

"Baby starts a Baby School and then goes to One School One and One School Level 2," she said. "Between the ages of six and eight, they become very strong … and when they grow naturally to vegetative areas or pre-release islands."

Sunderland-Groves says that the school usually teaches the skills needed to live in wild animals, usually learned from their mothers.

It includes climbing trees, avoiding and avoiding food, how to make night beads and how to avoid predators. Staff teach for example, which help young ornate learn.

According to the International Union for Conservation of Nature, approximately 70,000 orangutan Borneo lives in Sumatra, Indonesia and Malaysia.

Sunderland-Grovees said that the biggest risk of animal habitation comes from cleaning the land for palm oil, in which conflict and wild fires are added to the problem.

This foundation houses two centers in Indonesia, which has approximately 550 orangutan. Since 2012, the organization has re-released Oberoi-Mands Apps 378 in the wild.

Sunderland-Grovees said that forest has existed for a full year in the wild, there is one successful reproduction.

This means that the APA has learned to adapt to all other seasons for nutrients for other plants at other times in the proportion of the fruit in the vegetation.

The foundation matches the animals before the radio transmitter, so that their progress can be monitored.

She said that teachers and babysitters, who have every personality and characteristics of each animal, are very much attached to apples.

"But only one orangutan comes out of a cage and goes straight up to the forest and he knows that it will be in the last time in the cage is great," she said.

While on the other side of Indonesia, Sunderland-Grooves has said that it is important for people in Canada to care for these creatures because they share 97% of the same DNA as human beings.

"From Borneo to British Columbia, there are specific problems to a certain extent," he added, adding that both areas were influenced by forest fire and wood extraction, which leads to human wildlife conflicts.

"We share this planet and it's our duty to protect it."

Rehabilitation "School", which helps establish beautifulland-groves, is also a 10-part documentary series series to be broadcast on the Love Nature Channel.

"Orangutan Jungle School" Sunday at 8 o'clock on Sunday. And runs for 10 weeks.
