The lungs of the planet are on fire right now!! πŸ”₯ 🚨 The Amazon rainforest has been burning for weeks but has received almost no news coverage. When Notre-Dame burnt, billionaires and politicians emptied their pockets but when the most important ecosystem on earth is on fire we turn a blind eye. The world’s greatest cathedral is burning and there’s no rebuilding this one!!! 😒 Please help spread awareness. First πŸ“· by @mohsinkazmitakespictures

For the past two weeks I’ve enjoyed discovering old growth forests, misty coastlines, abundant waterfalls and ice cold lakes of the West Coast of the States. So much nature to explore and lots to learn here.πŸŒ²πŸŒΏπŸƒ Thanks to @unmind__ and @samgarrettmusic for being our guides. πŸ“·: @aliceaedy

Central Kalimantan

Teamwork makes the dream work. With @bosfoundation. πŸŽ₯

Central Kalimantan

One of the hardest parts of our time in Borneo was witnessing the Orangutans confined to cages. Whilst this was often for the animals own good, offering a temporary safe space whilst they are rehabilitated, it was impossible not to be confronted with the similarities we share with these remarkable creatures, and in turn with the sadness of their situation. Standing there and looking into the eyes of an Orangutan I felt an involuntary pang in my stomach, the type of feeling you get when you recognise something very familiar in the eyes of another being. It goes without saying that whilst Orangutans share 97% of our DNA, they also experience the same range of emotions; anger, fear, sadness, suffering and of course happiness, joy, and pleasure. @bosfoundation aims to be cage free in the future which means raising funds to create safe sanctuary’s for these animals to thrive once again in the wild. πŸ“·:@aliceaedy

In the wild, orangutan mothers raise their offspring for eight years, teaching them the skills they need for life in the forest. Without this vital bond, the babies are unable to survive on their own in the wild. Just like children they need help. At @bosfoundation, human surrogate mothers take on this role, preparing the orphans for a life beyond the rehabilitation center. It was truly incredible to see the @bosfoundation surrogate mothers interact with the orangutans, giving them the care they require. πŸ“·:@aliceaedy

Shooting in the Central Kalimantan, Borneo with @bosfoundation. Working up close with rehabilitated Orangutang was one of the most unique experiences I’ve had. It was important we wore masks at all times to ensure the safety of the animals and protect their health. In this image I’m also wearing an easyrig which helps take the weight of the camera and made shooting long hours in the jungle more bearable.

A group of baby Orangutan are carried in a wheelbarrow on their way back from jungle school. Most of the babies in the care of @bosfoundation have been orphaned and rely on human surrogate mothers to teach them to climb, forage and fend for themselves. This can take up to eight years before they’re released back into the wild. πŸ“·:@aliceaedy

A teenage Orangutan in the care of @bosfoundation in Central Kalimantan, Borneo. Orphaned orang-utans are incredibly vulnerable in the wild. They are commonly rescued by @bosfoundation from deforested areas, mining sites, plantations and villages. After 3 months in quarantine, the young orphan finally joins the others in the rehabilitation program. The under-twos start in the Nursery where they learn to climb, make friends and explore; rarely straying too far from their babysitters. Then, in Forest School, the orphans improve at foraging for food and making nests, learning directly from their caregivers. @bosfoundation is currently taking care of as many as 530 orangutans at our rehabilitation centers. πŸ“·:@aliceaedy
