      Orangutan Diary - The story continues...
      (Photo above, Lone and one of the stars of Orangutan Diary 2. Taken by BBC Natural History Unit cameraman, Mark MacEwen).
      Earlier this week, a few of us were fortunate enough to get a sneak preview of the first episode of the upcoming second series of Orangutan Diary, filmed at BOS's rescue project in Kalimantan. Watching it more than reaffirmed why we do what we do, why we care and why we will continue to work towards our ultimate goal of seeing these orphans of the rainforest back in the wild. Free and safe.
      One of the highlights of the episode is when Michaela catches up with Lomon in Forest School. And you know? He actually seemed very pleased to see her (though he didn't pause scoffing his piece of fruit!). What makes this reunion even more poignant is having seen the state of Lomon on his arrival at the sanctuary back in 2007 when the Natural History Unit were there filming the first series. He was bald, starved and had been kept chained by his "owner". To see the radical changes in Lomon in a little less than 2 years makes us proud to be working on behalf of Lone and the team at the Borneo Orangutan Survival Foundation, even more so as the BOS UK office is an adoptive parent of Lomon....
      We hope you get a chance to see Lomon in the first series which is currently been screened on BBC2 every Sunday evening at 5.30pm, and then at the beginning of March when the next series is aired, and realise that without the efforts of Lone and BOS Foundation, these and so many other orphans would not have survived.
      So please spread the word to family and friends about the plight of the orangutan and play your part in helping us to save this beautiful, enigmatic creature from extinction. And if they live in the UK, ask them to watch the series and see for themselves. Your support has given and and will continue to give these orangutans a second chance. And for that, we are truly grateful.
