In Borneo, many young orangutans are orphaned due to poaching and habitat loss. The babies who still have a chance at returning to the wild need to learn the survival skills their mothers would have taught them. The Borneo Orangutan Survival Foundation(BOSF) rescues and rehabilitates these orangutans through a program called Forest School. Oregon Zoo primate keeper Cydney Sines and some colleagues traveled to Borneo to help train these Forest School students. Using positive reinforcement techniques, they were able to encourage the young orangutans to learn the skills they'll need to survive in the wild.
