When she was just three years old, Lisa the orangutan was rescued by the International Animal Rescue (IAR) team – and she began her completely new life. Before her rescue, the little orangutan was being kept as a pet. She lived her life in a way that no wild animal should but many are forced to.

Before she was snatched by poachers, it is likely that Lisa had to witness her mother’s death. She had a tight rope tied around her neck when rescuers found her as well as wounds on her head and neck…

Lisa was in a poor condition. An inappropriate diet and intestinal worms made her bloated and she was very distressed. 

But since that time, the little orangutan has made a lot of progress and gone through the rehabilitation process with IAR.

Now, Lisa is finally perfectly ready to go back to her home in the forest!

“She desperately deserves a second chance in life,” the IAR team wrote about Lisa, “and with your help we can give her the greatest gift of all; freedom.”

 

 

After all she had to endure, Lisa is at last able to return to where she belongs – into the wild. However, releasing the animal into a protected National Park and monitoring her for two years after the release will cost the organization 40,000 dollars. It is a challenge – but “with your help, we can make this happen,” IAR shared.

To donate and help set Lisa free, go to The Gift Of Freedom Appeal website. To learn more about International Animal Rescue, click here.
