The Orangutan Conservancy is happy to announce the funding of the Wildlife Rescue Centre Jogja – Yayasan Konservasi Alam Yogyakarta (WRC Jogja). 

WRC Jogja is a small, non-profit, and non-government organization that is dedicated to wildlife conservation and rehabilitation in Indonesia. They have been rescuing injured, orphaned, and illegally traded wildlife since 2003.

To date, WRC Jogja has taken in over 1,000 animals and has successfully released over 800 back into the wild. Currently, the organization cares for 141 various species, including mammals birds, and reptiles. 29 of the 37 mammals in their care are primates. Seven of these primates are orangutans.

With travel restrictions and visitation events being canceled due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, WRC Jogja has been struggling financially as the current pandemic has drastically altered their 2020 plans. 

With the funding, WRC Jogja will purchase the feed needed for the animals in their care, especially the primates. In addition to this, the organization plans to use the funding to continue to help pay the salaries of primate keepers from September 2020 to February 2021.
