Jeni

Jeni arrived at our Nyaru Menteng Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre on 24th August of 2020.

Upon her arrival at the centre, 10-month-old Jeni weighed only 5 kilograms. She had dry skin and wounds on the back of one of her legs. It was evident that Jeni had experienced a traumatising time in captivity.

Today, Jeni has grown comfortable with her new life and has a healthy appetite. She loves milk in particular, which helps her get the extra nutritional intake she needs at this important stage of development.

Her progress has been amazing for us to witness, as it offers hope that Jeni will have a real chance at being released to the wild someday, to live in her natural habitat, the Bornean rainforest.

 

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.
