Please help to save Gundul!

Posted by engi at 2:26:00 PM

"Gundul is a lonely, Orangutan-lady, who 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, lightning 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.... The only certainty is, Gundul will not be helped unless YOU do something to help her."


The above message had been posted at FB by Sean Whyte, CEO of Nature Alert, in his plea to help him to save Gundul, the lonely Orangutan lady.

Despite at least six personal attempts and several very kind letters trying to persuade the CEO of nearby Borneo Orangutan Survival Foundation to rescue Gundul, he/they have never once replied to Mr Whyte. No answer, no explanation; nothing.

Mr Whyte now needs YOUR help to get Gundul out of this miserable situation. Will you help him, to help Gundul please?

Here's what you can do: 

SIGN the two PETITIONS that have been created so far:

1) http://www.change.org/en-GB/petitions/please-save-gundul

2) https://www.change.org/petitions/mr-jamartin-sihite-ceo-of-bosf-borneo-orangutan-survivial-foundation-to-rescue-orangutan-gundul-who-lives-on-a-pile-of-garbage-in-borneo#share

SEND a PERSONAL MESSAGE to Jamartin Sihite, CEO, BOSF (Borneo Orangutan Survival Foundation):

In addition to signing the petitions we highly encourage writing personalized and original letters, as they get a lot of attention from recipients. Please send a kind message to Jamartin Sihite, CEO, BOSF asking him/them to please arrange to have Gundul rescued today!
