Orangutans who miraculously survived devastating wildfires have been rescued in the nick of time by plucky conservationists. The great apes, both around 20, were discovered clinging to the last trees standing in the middle of a burnt area of rainforest in West Borneo, Indonesia. A team from International Animal Rescue - IAR - found the male and female, named Bara and Arang, during a fire patrol on September 16. Together with the West Kalimantan Conservation Agency, the starving simians were sedated and evacuated to IAR's conservation centre for rehabiliation. Dehydrated Bara and Arang - one of which had a bullet lodged in its face - are undergoing treatment and medical observation. This video was filmed 16th September 2019.
