LOVELY LUNA –
A LITTLE LOST ANGEL
Luna was a special little orangutan. She was the youngest and smallest of the group of orangutans under our care. With her fluffy hair and big brown eyes, she stole everyone’s hearts. Perhaps she was too beautiful and irresistible. Our little angel "disappeared" in early April 2011 under very suspicious circumstances. Everything was done to find Luna, to no avail. It was heartbreaking for everyone involved. Read more here.
Since this unthinkable event, Orangutan Outreach has become extremely vigilant in assuring proper and expert care for rescued orangutans. We are exceptionally careful about who we partner with in Indonesia. We thoroughly vet the organizations we work with and we have utmost respect and confidence in our current partners. This includes the International Animal Rescue Indonesia Foundation (YIARI) who we entrusted to care for Luna's friends after her disappearance from a questionable facility.
Thank you for caring as much as we do about every precious orangutan soul.
