Mr Jamartin Sihite CEO of BOSF (Borneo Orangutan Survivial Foundation): To rescue Orangutan Gundul who lives on a pile of garbage in Borneo

Say “Hello” to “Gundul”. She lives on a pile of garbage beside a goat pen. Day and night, in all weathers, this is her only life 24/7. When it rains she has no choice but to sit or sleep in the mud and her own urine and faeces: Think about that for a moment.

Her only protection from the weather is a black trash bag to place over her own head. If you are familiar with tropical storms you will know all about thunder, lightening and rain. Gundul faces all this, alone, especially at night: Think about that for a moment. Pitch dark, torrential rain, thunder and lightning and she is there all alone and this could be a daily occurrence during the long rainy season.

It has been 20 years since she was taken from her slaughtered mother. Gundul has not seen another orangutan for 20 years: Why not take some time and think about this as well?

She is now 21 years-old and held by an old man since 1990 in Samarinda on the east coast of Borneo. When she was a baby, Gundul was free to go everywhere; even the old man let her around his house. However, when she grew up, Gundul’s strength and frustrations became a threat to the owner, so she was placed inside a cage. As Gundul could not be kept in a cage anymore, because she was able to destroy the wooden cage. So she was tied up at her neck by chains, and the chains are tied up to a tree.

Despite everything Gundul is a gentle and seemingly forgiving orangutan. Her future, though, is uncertain. Will BOSF abandon Gundul the way they abandoned Rambo before he died? The only certainty is, Gundul will not be helped unless YOU do something to help her.

Despite at least six personal attempts to persuade the CEO of nearby Borneo Orangutan Survival Foundation to rescue Gundul, he/they have never once replied. No answer, no explanation; nothing. What do you think about BOSF? If you would like to have Gundul saved, the person to write to is: Jamartin Sihite, CEO, BOSF,       jhs_sihite@yahoo.com; info@sambojalodge.com; bos_komunikasi@orangutan.or.id; info@bos-deutschland.de

 

IF NOT YOU, WHO? IF NOT NOW, WHEN?

Dear Mr Sihite

Say “Hello” to “Gundul”. She lives on a pile of garbage beside a goat pen. Day and night, in all weathers, this is her only life 24/7. When it rains she has no choice but to sit or sleep in the mud and her own urine and faeces: Think about that for a moment.

Her only protection from the weather is a black trash bag to place over her own head. If you are familiar with tropical storms you will know all about thunder, lightening and rain. Gundul faces all this, alone, especially at night: Think about that for a moment. Pitch dark, torrential rain, thunder and lightning and she is there all alone and this could be a daily occurrence during the long rainy season.

It has been 20 years since she was taken from her slaughtered mother. Gundul has not seen another orangutan for 20 years: Why not take some time and think about this as well?

She is now 21 years-old and held by an old man since 1990 in Samarinda on the east coast of Borneo. When she was a baby, Gundul was free to go everywhere; even the old man let her around his house. However, when she grew up, Gundul’s strength and frustrations became a threat to the owner, so she was placed inside a cage. As Gundul could not be kept in a cage anymore, because she was able to destroy the wooden cage. So she was tied up at her neck by chains, and the chains are tied up to a tree.

Despite everything Gundul is a gentle and seemingly forgiving orangutan. Her future, though, is uncertain. Will you BOSF abandon Gundul the way you abandoned Rambo before he died? The only certainty is, Gundul will not be helped unless YOU do something to help her.

Despite at least six personal attempts which have been made to you to request that you rescue Gundul, being the CEO of Borneo Orangutan Survival Foundation, you have never once replied. No answer, no explanation; nothing.

We now ask you to respond. Please rescue Gundul before she dies in this man-made hell on earth. Please fulfill your duty to Gundul. The world via the Internet and Facebook is now watching closely what you do next.

With many thanks in advance for your assistance.

Yours sincerely

Letter 2

Dear Jamartin,

I am writing to ask if BOSF will please accept the four orangutans illustrated below into Samboja Lestari without delay?

As we both know, orangutans like these four have suffered enough and could die from an illness at any moment.

My understanding from COP is they have written recently and asked BOSF to accept these orangutans. All four orangutans are big news throughout social media and clearly this is not helpful to BOSF or the orangutans.

I have a reasonable understanding of the pressures upon BOSF but I ask you please not to allow these four orangutans to suffer a day longer, and bring them to Samboja Lestari where I suspect conditions may not be as ideal as you would like, but better and safer than where these four are now. Doing so will be wonderful for the orangutans and BOSF will rightfully receive a lot of praise on Facebook/Twitter etc.

Many thanks.



Kind regards,

Sean Whyte
