A total of 37 orangutans are currently receiving treatment for respiratory tract infections at the Borneo Orangutan Survival Foundation's rehabilitation center in Nyaru Menteng, Palangkaraya. The orangutans started suffering from breathing problems after being exposed for weeks to extreme smoke and haze from forest fires on Kalimantan Island.
