    hey all
    check out the exciting media release on perth zoo's website about temara, a 14 year old female orang born in perth who next week will be flying back to sumatra for release into the wild!!!
    the program is to establish a new colony of orangs, mainly confiscated pets in the national park. the multi-agent program has the full support of the indonesian government and could represent, if it is successful, a big breakthrough for the conservation of this species.
