For six years, this orangutan lived in a tiny cage. Now he's nearly free | 7.30

Last year, Foreign Correspondent discovered Jono, an adult orangutan, at a quarantine centre in Jakarta. He'd been held in a small cage there for six years.
Now, thanks to the public response to the program, Jono is being moved to an orangutan sanctuary in Borneo where he will learn how to live in the wild. Adam Harvey followed Jono’s journey for 7.30.

    Great job! I might suggest when any animal comes out of the transport cage, to leave him in a calm environment... too many people an noice... with respect 🙂

    1:14で檻ごと手を掴まれて2人がかりでやっと離れるのを見るあたりオランウータンの力の強さが分かる。 偶々オランウータンが手加減して手を離してくれたからまだ良かったかもしれないけど、下手すれば握り潰されてたかもしれないし。いくら檻越しでも人間の数倍力のある怪物に迂闊に近寄っちゃダメでしょ...。

    He's just a handler and doing his best to keep him healthy. It's the people above him that has an authority to release Jono. He has no power nor say about Jono's destiny. The government paid him as his caretaker. Why do u blaming him for something he has no power over? In another document, it's explained that some people that go against the government have their life in danger.

    The people on this comment are ignorant. You are right. *Most* humans are a disgrace. There are more bad and harmful humans than "good" ones. Humans are bad for the environment and destroy this planet; NOT for survival, but for greed. We are more harmful to this planet than any other species HANDS DOWN. We are the only species actively working to destroy nature and this planet for nothing more than our own selfish short term goals. The entire reason why Orangutans are endangered is because we indulged into the palm oil business for money. Thats it. Money. We do not need palm oil to survive, yet we destroy their homes to make money so that we can buy nets and yachts. Now, we are so dependent on palm oil, that seeking out an alternative isnt easy. Palm oil is everywhere and in everything. Its cheaper to make and yields high margins. To stop would be harmful to our GDP and would disrupt our everyday lives. So now it is easier to just continue than to actually put in the work to find a better solution. It's easier to say "it's either humans or orangutans". So yes, I recognize that this means that I am inherently hating on myself. And that's partly true. My current life and upbringing contributes to the death of this planet. The way I live, the car I drive, the clothes I wear, the food I eat, the phone I am using.... all contributing to the downfall of the planet. It's so unfortunate that our society cannot function unless we are killing the planet. We sacrifice the future of our great great great grandchildren all for the comfort of our lives today.

    @Andrew Edwards exactly... but not because of palm oil, but because of illegal logging since 1980's... Local people used those empty lands for farming, until rich and powerful people came and use the lands for palm oil plantation.

    mochammad erwin It’s the main reason for deforestation and environmental degradation in rainforests. They clear the land to use it for palm oil farming, completely disrupting the entire ecosystem and destroying the native animals habitats, which is what ends up killing them and eventually makes them go extinct, that’s why so many of them are endangered.

    Deep. Thank God for all the people who realized he was a prisoner and are helping him get back into his natural environment. It made me feel so happy to watch him starts swinging from the tire and the rope right away even if he wasn't as strong as he will be. Thank you for sharing this.

    Different countries have different laws or don’t enforce them; (so the government gets more money). In some countries there are not even woman’s rights. I’m no animal rights person I’m conservation and welfare.

    S A They didn't explain that part very well. But the keeper they showed I believe was somebody who was working with him once they discovered him and we're trying to get him out. He wasn't his capture. It's amazing that it took six years to get the okay to release him into an acceptable sanctuary! The idea that you could lock up a smart animal in a small cage like that for so many years makes me sick. What kind of cruel person would ever do such a thing.

    Fyi Hercules (his name) is now in the sanctuary, he's now friendly and used to interact with others even with the people who rescued him before. ☺️
