Saving Orangutans 16
After the surgery, Hope is placed on a comfortable bed in a low cage to restrict her movements as the collarbone (clavicle) heals. She will remain in intensive care until full recovery. Totally blind from being shot in both eyes, she can no longer survive in the wild. However, Hope is a candidate for The Haven, the SOCP's soon-to-open facility where she can live out her life in a natural environment under the loving care of dedicated caregivers.
