Saving Orangutans
Sibolangit, SOCP Quarantine Centre, North Sumatra, Indonesia. The whole SOCP team works together to prepare Brenda, an estimated 3-month-old female orangutan (she has no teeth yet), for surgery. Her arm is shaved, a sedative is administered, and her temperature is taken, while others hold her head or her hand out of compassion. During the three-hour procedure, Dr Andreas Messikommer, a renowned orthopaedic surgeon from Switzerland, will place a pin and screws in her arm to secure the damaged humerus. Brenda was confiscated from a villager in Blang Pidie on the west coast of Aceh who was keeping her as a pet.

سيبولانجيت، مركز الحجر الصحي SOCP، شمال سومطرة، إندونيسيا. يوحّد فريق العمل في مركز الحجر الصحي SOCP جهوده لتحضير أنثى الأورانجوتان بريندا البالغة من العمر ثلاثة أشهر (ليس لديها أسنان بعد)، لإخضاعها لعملية جراحية. تمّ حلق ذراعها وحقنها بمهدّئ وأخذ درجة حرارتها فيما أمسك آخرون برأسها أو يدها رأفةً بها. وخلال العملية التي تستغرق ثلاث ساعات، سوف يقوم الطبيب أندرياس ميسيكومر وهو جرّاح عظام معروف من سويسرا بتثبيت دبوس وملاوٍ في ذراعها لتثبيت عظم العضد التالف. تمّت مصادرة بريندا من قرويّ في بلدة بلانغبيدي الواقعة على الساحل الغربي من آتشيه وهو كان يبقيها لديه كحيوانٍ أليف.
