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.
