Welcome baby Cinta and baby Jumbo to our adoption program


Earlier this year, we announced the exciting news that Ruthie and Nody had graduated to orangutan ‘university’ on Palas Island. The Island allows them to live as wild orangutans, but under the close supervision of the staff at Nyaru Menteng. The Island is the last phase in the rehabilitation process and our hope is that in time, they’ll be ready for the next step – release back into the wild.

With Ruthie and Nody’s move to the Island, it will be increasingly difficult to get regular updates on their progress. However, we are delighted to introduce you to Cinta and Jumbo who will be replacing Ruthie and Nody on our adoption program. You can adopt them here

 An adoption of Cinta or Jumbo would make an ideal Christmas Present!
