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.
