Game Over! On April 8th 2016, FOTO received confirmation both remaining orangutans at the Shangri-La Rasa Ria Resort in Sabah have been sent back to the Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre, thus ending the 20 year exploitation of Sabah’s orphan orangutans at the luxury hotel. We were also informed “we [the resort] will never have anymore orangutans here“. But our group will keep a close eye on the resort always.
Friends of the Orangutans Malaysia would like to convey our huge thanks to all supporters who have made this victory possible. Without your concern and support the exploitation would still be happening.
This victory for Malaysian orangutans over a huge corporate entity proves people power can prevail.
Our Shangri-La campaign officials ends today. THANK YOU, and remember:
