International Animal Rescue Saving animals from suffering around the world

IAR's rescue team cut orangutan Japik free

This is the moment our team cut orangutan Japik free from the chain that had been tight around her neck - what an amazing feeling that must have been for Japik.

Japik the orangutan spent two long years chained to a tree behind her owner's house, with nothing but a narrow wooden plank to sit on and no shelter from the hot sun or driving rain. Her neck was chained and the short chain was nailed to the tree. 

Japik is now being cared for at our orangutan rescue and rehabilitation centre in West Borneo.
