Sabah Orangutan Rehabilitation Project was originally proposed in 1961
by P.F. Burgess, then the Deputy Conservator of Forests. He was also
responsible for the establishment of a game
branch within the
Forest Department and the drafting of the Fauna Conservation
afterwards, Barbara Harrisson, wife of the Curator of Sarawak Museum,
began to rescue young orangutans being kept locally as pets, and the
idea grew of training these animals to fend for themselves so that they
might re-adapt to life in the wild. In 1962, with the backing of the
newly formed World Wildlife Fund, Harrisson visited Sabah (then North
Borneo) and reported that orangutan were rare and threatened with
extinction. In Sabah it is a totally protected animal under the Fauna
Conservation Ordinance, 1963.
