Meet Jera

Volunteer Paloma introduces Jera, a rescued young orangutan at International Animal Rescue's emergency centre in Ketapang, West Kalimantan.

JeraJera is a male of about 5 years old who, like Helen, was rescued from the burning of the land for the oil palm plantation.

Jera is pretty wild and we think he will be able to survive in the forest on his own, so we try to have as little contact as possible with him.

The idea is to release him as soon as possible into a safe area in the forest along with Helen!
