International Animal Rescue not only save animals from suffering, they also rehabilitate and release animals back into the wild and work to protect their precious natural habitats.

Their work includes cutting free and caring for caged bears in India and Armenia, rescuing and rehabilitating critically endangered Bornean orangutans and slow lorises in Indonesia and treating injured and orphaned howler monkeys in Costa Rica. Their aim is to return animals to their natural environment wherever possible, but they also provide a permanent home for those that can no longer fend for themselves.

As human populations expand, wildlife comes under increasing threat. By rescuing individual animals belonging to species like the orangutan and reintroducing them into protected areas in the wild, their work also plays a role in the conservation of the species as a whole.
