Cinta was severely underweight and frightened when she was found at a Palm Oil Plantation in 2014. She was just 5 months old when she arrived at the Nyaru Menteng Rehabilitation Centre. Initially very shy and nervous, she slowly came out of her shell, with the help of her babysitters. Dubbed the princess, she often demanded treats from her surrogate mothers and did not stop until they gave in to her.
Now, Cinta has graduated through the ranks of Forest School and spends her time climbing the forest canopy foraging for delicious fruits. She likes searching for a comfortable nest that one of her forest friends has built. Once she has found a nest, she takes full advantage of her buddies’ hard work and enjoys resting in there for hours.
Cinta’s distinctive trait is her red, silky, thick hair. She has come a long way since we first met her. She has developed into a confident female orangutan who has gained many problem-solving skills for her future life in the rainforest. Cinta is one of the stars on the awarded documentary series “Orangutan Jungle School” on Stan.
