About Red Ape: Saving the Orangutan
This is the dramatic story of one team of medics on the frontline of an environmental warzone. For 10 years International Animal Rescue has used cameras to document the fight to save the orangutan from the brink of extinction – pulling distressed apes from Borneo’s devastated jungle, administering life-saving medical care and releasing them back to the wild. Through interviews with top scientists and conservationists, this film explores the historical backstory of the orangutan’s rapid decline and the solutions that might save these gentle apes from extinction.

International Animal Rescue (IAR)
At International Animal Rescue we not only save animals from suffering, we also rehabilitate and release them back into the wild and work to protect their precious natural habitats. Our work includes cutting free and caring for captive bears in India and Armenia, rescuing and rehabilitating orangutans and other primates in Indonesia and treating injured and orphaned howler monkeys in Costa Rica. Our aim is to return animals to their natural environment wherever possible, but we also provide a permanent home for those that can no longer fend for themselves.
As human populations expand, wildlife comes under increasing threat. By rescuing individual animals belonging to species like the orangutan and reintroducing them into protected areas in the wild, our work also plays a role in the conservation of the species as a whole.
