Two critically endangered orangutans have been rescued from captivity on Indonesia’s Java island and sent to a rehabilitation centre on Borneo to assess whether they can be released back into the wild, a conservation group said. “Samson” and “Boboy”, both male and estimated to be around 20 years old, were suffering from malnutrition when they were removed from an amusement park and a private family home, according to a statement from International Animal Rescue (IAR). The two Bornean orangutans had been identified as being illegally held in captivity in October last year before a rescue was arranged, said Darmanto, the head of Indonesia’s nature conservation agency in Central Java. The orangutans, who had been held in cages, have been sent to a rehabilitation centre in Ketapang, in West Kalimantan province on Borneo, IAR said. At the centre, they will be given health checks and quarantined for two months before being assessed to decide whether they can be returned to the wild.
