The petition
Ms. Siti Nurbaya Bakar, Minister of the Environment and Forestry of Indonesia,

We are writing to urge you, as Minister of Environment and Forestry of Indonesia, to support the cause of Alba, the world’s only albino orangutan.

In April 2017, this female orangutan was rescued in a village on the island of Borneo. She had been kept in a cage for several months and was in terrible health condition. 

The Borneo Orangutan Survival Foundation rescued and treated Alba, but she needs further help to live safely. Indeed, her albinism causes many health conditions that prevent her from living safely in the wild.

Alba needs to be placed on a special reserve that would allow her to live in the forest again, and a fundraising campaign has been launched to raise the 80,000$ needed for the creation of its creation.

We kindly ask the Ministry of the Environment and Forestry, to do everything possible to help Alba. The Ministry could not only offer financial support to BOS for the construction of the reserve but also help to find a parcel of land to create this safe haven for Alba.

Without your support, Alba may never be able to live a safe and peaceful life. We thank you for the attention you will bring to this matter.
