Rescue centres such as the one at the International Animal Rescue facility in Ketapang,Borneo, pictured below, reported a huge influx of orphan orangutang as a result of the fires in 2015. Caretakers took wheelbarrows of one an two-year-old Bornean orangutang to play in the forest and learn some of the basic skills of survival. Their chances of ever living wild again are remote – of the thousands of rescued orphans, only a small proportion have ever been released success.
