Update 20/3/2018: Golden Agri-Resources (GAR) has been collaborating with the Orangutan Foundation International (OFI) for eight years, to rehabilitate & release wild-born, captive orangutans back to their natural habitat. We have since released 100 orangutans back into the forest. The partnership is part of our company’s continuous efforts to protect rare, threatened or endangered species and to help preserve Indonesia’s biodiversity.
