A smuggled orangutan sits caged in Halim Perdanakusumah Airport, Jakarta, Indonesia. Forty six smuggled orangutan from a Thai amusement park are to eventually to fly home to their native Indonesia.

After their short transit in Jakarta, they will fly to Nyaru Menteng Orangutan Reintroduction Center in Central Kalimantan, Borneo.
