BEAR to Orangutans Aid

Francine Neago, a French Animal Behaviourist and Orangutan expert living in Bali, has secured funding and land from Italy’s Veterinary Association for an Animal Rescue Centre in Bali. It will not be open to the public, but is a research centre open to scientists and students completing their doctorates on endangered species.

It will be overseen by the government organization BEAR (Bali Endangered Animal Rescue), who will choose an island where an open range, private habitat can be established, away from the encroachment and threats from humans and cities. By removing the species from their most immediate and destructive hazards, a real attempt can hopefully be made for rehabilitation. She is still awaiting final approval from the Indonesian government, but remains positive.
