Saving Orangutans 20

At dawn, veterinarian Pandu crosses the Krueng Aceh river in a small boat carrying Diana, an 8-year-old female orangutan, for a final release. Having been domesticated, Diana had difficulty adjusting to forest food and on her last visit to the clinic, they discovered she had malaria that required a blood transfusion. Since, she has been on a strict diet of leaves but it remains to be seen if she will successfully adapt to the jungle this time.
