Meet Some of Our Orangutan Orphans:


Chocolate is an adorable 2½-year-old male, who arrived at the centre in June 2012. When he was found in Southwest Aceh, he was very thin, with dry skin and dull, wiry hair. Chocolate was quite shy when he was first rescued, but after he was introduced to another young male orangutan, named ‘Pandu’, they began playing together and have since become best friends. With your help and support, this increasingly healthy and happy orangutan has an extremely promising future!


Bunga arrived at the centre in West Kalimantan in November 2009. She was about 2½ years old. When she was first rescued, she was rather cautious and rarely left her caregiver’s side. However she gradually became increasingly independent and made a friend for life in Cindy, a female of Bunga’s age who was rescued in February 2010. The two girls are both competent climbers and spend most of their time not far apart from each other. These days she is a cheeky infant of between 4 and 5 years old, with a healthy appetite and gaining weight steadily.
This beautiful young orangutan is Monti, a 3-year-old female who was rescued in 2009. It took the rescue team several days to track Monti down after being alerted of her existence and when she was found, she needed care 24/7, just like a human baby. It took a while, but eventually Monti was well and strong enough to join in the fun and games with the other young orangutans at the centre. Monti is a very sweet and inquisitive young girl, and with your help this Christmas, she will be able to continue her development and live a happy and healthy life.
