BOSF chairman of board of trustee, Bungaran Saragih asserted that ROI would not harvest trees in its concession areas.
"We are committed to protecting the orangutans. They need forests. They have been living in the rehabilitation centers for too long," he told the Post on Saturday.
Bungaran, who was former forestry and agriculture minister, admitted the high costs to conserve orangutans, whose population sharply declined due to the expansion of oil palm plantations and mining sites, among others.
He said ROI would spend at least two years monitoring the daily activities of released orangutans in its new habitat to ensure that they could survive in the area.
"We should teach [orangutans] survival skills for the wild. Some have been in the rehabilitation center for about nine years," he said.
"The government has now started the process of issuing permits for us to take control of suitable land for orangutan release," said the BOSF Chairman of the Board of Trustees, Professor Bungaran Saragih, a former Minister of Forestry. "We must release all captive orangutans back into the wild. They have for too long been living in cages," said Professor Saragih.

"Sad because we have to be separated from orangutans that have been under our care for a considerable time, but delighted that they can finally return to their real home," he said.
