BAGAN SERAI: Two orangutans, Ah Ling and Carlos, loaned to the Bukit Merah Orang Utan Island Foundation (YPOUBM) here since 18 years ago, will soon return to the Sarawak Forestry Corporation.

Ah Ling and Carlos had been loaned to the YPOUBM as a step towards protecting the endangered species.

An event, which was witnessed by Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, was held at a resort here to symbolise the return of the orangutans.

Earlier, Dr Mahathir and YPOUBM chairman and adviser Tan Sri Mustapha Kamal Abu Bakar witnessed the signing ceremony of a memorandum of understanding between EMKAY Foundation (YE), Pulau Banding Foundation (PBF), and YPOUBM with Universiti Teknologi Mara (UiTM) to promote academic cooperation including setting up research centre in science and medical field at the PBF and YPOUBM facilities.
