Adopt Monti

Monti is one of the younger members of the center’s orangutan family. She arrived at the centre at the end of November 2009. We were told that Monti was being kept by a family in a remote rural location. When we found them they claimed that the tiny orangutan had been found alone in the jungle and they had taken her in:

Monti is one of the younger members of the center’s orangutan family. She arrived at the centre at the end of November 2009. It had taken our rescue team several days to track her down after forestry officers had alerted us to her existence.

We were told that Monti was being kept by a family in a remote rural location. When we found them they claimed that the tiny orangutan had been found alone in the jungle and they had taken her in: but in reality we know that an orangutan baby is never left alone by its mother and some one must have killed Monti's mother to get to her.

At first Monti was so young that she needed round-the-clock care like a human baby: she drank lots of milk and slept a great deal. Eventually though she was ready to leave the side of her guardian, and join in the games of the other young orangutans. After weeks of watching her friends indulge in some real rough and tumble, finally Monti was big and strong enough to join in all the fun and games with the others.

She quickly developed into quite a fearless climber with a great sense of adventure. Monti is very sweet and inquisitive. She is also always eager to make friends with new volunteers when they are finding their feet at the centre. Monti is known for having the thickest and shiniest coat of the whole bunch. No wonder she's always having her photo taken!
