Dear Friend of the Orangutan,

Please will you send the letter and news article below, keeping the subject line the same?

Please bear in mind, before seeking public support I spent six long, intensely frustrating months, trying to persuade this person (and CITES as well as the Indonesian Ministry of Forestry) to help these orangutans. Why I even had to try to get an orangutan organisation to help save orangutans, is deeply worrying. BOSF have brought this criticism upon themselves.

Thank you once again.
Sean

please send, keeping the same subject line as above, to: mtogu8@gmail.com; and copy to: nic_herm@yahoo.com;
esalim@rad.net.id;

If any emails are rejected, please try again and until they do go through okay. Some inboxes may temporarily fill up!

Please feel free to add your name to the letter – it always helps but is not essential.

The letter below simply needs copying or cut and pasting into a normal email.

TO:

Dr. Togu Manurung, Chief Executive,
Borneo Orangutan Survival Foundation (BOSF)


Dear Mr. Manurung,

Since writing to you last week I note I have not had the courtesy of a reply, which leaves me wondering what you have since done to help save and repatriate the 12 orangutans you have up to now abandoned in Thailand?

In case it helps you visualise how welcome home these oranguatns would be, I thought you might like to see these two photos from 2006 when BOSF accepted 48 orangutans from Thailand. One photo was taken at the local airport and the other outside the gates of BOSF Nyaru Menteng. You will see the military provided the air transport at no cost to BOSF.

At that time BOSF had almost no money and few management – quite the opposite to BOSF nowadays.

What BOSF did have at Nyaru Menteng then (sadly no longer) was Lone Droscher Nielsen, a wonderfully compassionate lady
who said ‘yes’ to accepting these 48 orangutans.

Lone never made excuses – the orangutans always came first and the money then followed from supporters and well wishers.

I gather BOSF now wants payment in advance for accepting orangutans; if money is an issue, which I seriously doubt, I suggest you reduce the size of the BOSF management team and put the lives of orangutans first.

I cannot help but wonder how much donors money was spent on the recent BOSF four-day conference held at that luxury ocean-side hotel a long way from your office....how many of you had to fly there at the expense of BOSF donors?

Until you and your organisation stops making excuses, I will be here to remind you of the 12 orangutans you have abandoned in Thailand in the full knowledge they would end up being abused as in the photos below.

Yours sincerely,

A Friend of the Orangutans
