International Animal Rescue
Our work includes cutting free and caring for dancing bears in India, rescuing primates from captivity in Indonesia and sterilising and vaccinating stray dogs and cats in developing countries. Wherever possible we return rescued animals to their natural environment but we also provide a permanent home for animals that can no longer survive in the wild.
As human populations expand, wildlife comes under increasing threat. By rescuing individual animals belonging to species like the orangutan and reintroducing them into protected areas in the wild, our work also plays a role in the conservation of the species as a whole.
IAR has two rescue centres in Indonesia
One in Ketapang where we rescue rehabilitate and release Orangutans and Slow Lorises back into the wild and a second in Ciapus in Java for Macaques and Lorises.
We also help fund the Wildlife SOS bear sanctuaries in India and the Wildlife rescue centre in Armenia where we fund the Great bear rescue. We are also building a new rescue centre for wildlife in Costa Rica.
