The world’s only known albino orangutan needs to be relocated to a new home away from “threats posed by humans”, campaigners say. Alba has been living at a rehabilitation centre for the past five months after being rescued from a village in Borneo. The five-year-old orangutan cannot be safely returned to the wild because of health issues related to her albinism, according to the Borneo Orangutan Survival (BOS) Foundation. Her poor sight and hearing, as well as the likelihood of developing skin cancer later in life, means she can’t be released. Instead, the BOS wants to create a five-hectare "forest island" where Alba can live out the rest of her days in a more natural and less cramped environment. “To ensure that Alba can live a free and fulfilling life we are making her a forest island home, where she can live freely in natural habitat, but protected from threats posed by humans,” the foundation said. BOS hope to raise $80,000 needed to buy land for the special reserve and have appealed for help on social media.

Today's the day folks, Pearlee and Jolene's big surgeries. Pearle must sense something because she is hiding under my bed. Poor girl. We also got some conflicting news about Jolene yesterday while signing consent forms for Dr. Tudor to operate. I guess I knew but until you hear it first hand you don't think about it. If when Dr. Tudor opens up Jolene's leg and it is so far gone to fix, she will have to amputate her leg. Please let's all pray for these little girls today. Please keep them in your thoughts...
