Cinta

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 babysitters and did not stop until they gave in to her.

Now, at the age of 5 years old Cinta has graduated through the ranks to Forest School and spends her time climbing the forest canopy foraging for delicious fruits.  Cinta likes searching for a comfortable nest that one of her forest friends has built.  Once she does, she takes full advantage of their hard work and enjoys resting in there for hours.

When Cinta first arrived at the centre, her distinctive trait was her thick hair.  Today, Cinta continues to have that thick, red silky hair that most of us dream of.

Cinta has come a long way since we first met her, she has developed into a confident young orangutan who has gained many skills to prepare her for future release.

How my Adoption Can Help

Safety in our Rehabilitation Centres

Rehabilitation centres are set up to accommodate confiscated or donated pet orangutans. The aim is to guide and teach apes to return to their habitat. Many orangutans have already been successfully returned and released back in the wild.

Dedicated Nannies

Orangutan infants stay with their mother until they are about 6 or 7 years old. The mother teaches them everything about survival in the forest. Orphan orangutans in our care have dedicated nannies who give them the love and teach them important skills to be a wild orangutan.

Critical Vet Care

Unfortunately, Orangutans will come to us critically ill or malnourished. They may also need care from time to time as they grow up and go through Forest School. Our dedicated veterinary team are on hand at both of our rehabilitation centres.

Reintroduction or Translocation into the Wild

When an orangutan has completed their Forest School training, we assess if they are ready to be released back into the wild. Our overriding goal is to reintroduce orangutans back to secure natural habitat. We can only do this with your support.
