On Au­gust 21, the Bor­neo Orangutan Sur­vival Foun­da­tion (BOSF) vis­ited the Aus­tralian In­de­pen­dent School (AIS) to share the im­por­tance of their work in help­ing save the orang­utans. Orang­utans are very closely re­lated to hu­mans as they share 97 per­cent of hu­man DNA and are ex­tremely pa­tient and in­tel­li­gent mam­mals. They are crit­i­cally en­dan­gered due to log­ging, fires, ex­pan­sion of palm oil plan­ta­tions and poach­ing. Stu­dents Is­abelle, Anusha and Ananya from AIS’s Help­ing Hands were very ex­cited to hand over a cheque amount­ing to Rp.10,959,400 raised by the stu­dents’ coin col­lec­tion buck­ets last term.

BOSF dis­cussed the hu­man im­pact on orang­utans on cam­pus ear­lier this year, and AIS stu­dents vol­un­teered to help. BOSF also man­aged to fundraise by sell­ing lov­able orangutan mer­chan­dise at AIS.
