I’m so pleased to be able to wish you a Happy New Year and give you a little update on your adopted orangutan.

I recently spent two weeks at our BORA rescue and rehabilitation centre in East Kalimantan. The purpose of my visit was to spend time with the staff and share my orangutan experience and knowledge with them regarding orangutan behaviour, enrichment, nutrition, welfare, and training for release into the wild

I was so impressed with the dedication and commitment of the staff in preparing these orangutans for release. It is thanks to your generous support that these precious orphaned orangutans have a second chance at returning to their true jungle home.

I was very fortunate to spend time with the very gorgeous and tiny Harapi. He is such a delightful baby who adores his foster mums. Being so young, Harapi will often cry if they move too far away from him. He has become good friends with little Cinta and loves to explore the nearby fruit trees with her. It honestly looked like their bellies were going to pop from gorging on rambutans and guavas. Harapi gets very tired from his climbing expeditions so needs to have a nap or two during the day just like a human baby.

It was such a joy to be able to spend time with Harapi and chat to the vet team who look after him.  Thank you for helping Harapi on his journey to freedom.
