Heartwarming footage has captured the moment conservationists save a wild orangutan stranded in the middle of a raging river.


The orangutan was found in the middle of the Gorilla Waterfall in Lesan River, East Kalimantan, Indonesia. Members from The Centre for Orangutan Protection, OWT, BKSDA and Nemdoh Nemkay were out on a survey of the protected forest area when they stumbled upon the stranded orangutan. Not knowing how long it had been in the water the conservationists were determined to get the orangutan back to the safety of trees as quickly as possible.
