The orangutan has now been evacuated and taken to the BOS Rehabilitation Center in Samboja, Kutai Kertanegara Regency for a checkup before being released back into the wild.
"The orangutans likely entered villages [like Lusan] from the wild to gather fruit and vegetables, or seek water and shelter. They usually do this when they could not find these essentials in their habitat."
Orangutans are endangered in their natural environment throughout Kalimantan and Sumatra, as the rain forests that make up their habitat are cut down to make way for palm oil plantations, residential areas, and other manmade structures.
