After undergoing quarantine and a full medical check, these two youngsters made the journey to join the reintroduction program in the Bukit Tigapuluh Ecosystem in Sumatra. Natalee has commenced Jungle School with other orangutans, but stays close to Ung Aing. She doesn’t like to be carried to Jungle School so she will use the ropes to climb from her enclosure to the forest. Natalee is eager to explore the forest and has tried many forest foods including fruits, leaves, cambium and stem. She also enjoys all the food and soy milk given to her by the keepers.
Natalee is learning how to use all the different enrichment items including puzzle boxes and feeder balls to obtain food. The keepers also bring the young orangutans a wide variety of forest fruits, leaves and termites. Natalee doesn’t know how to build a nest yet, but she can learn this skill from other more advanced orangutans at the sanctuary.
By adopting Natalee today, you are helping fund our activities to protect her and her friends from the threats they face. You will receive regular updates on their progress as they are cared for in our facilities, with the hope of eventually returing to the jungle.
Depending on the adoption package you purchase you will receive
an adoption pack for yourself or your loved ones.
