Monyo

Monyo arrived at our Nyaru Menteng Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre on 14th November 2019.

A local villager claimed to have found 6-month-old Monyo stranded alone a week before being rescued. Monyo underwent three months of quarantine with two other rescued infants, Niniek and Hanua, before joining the Nursery Group. The three formed strong bonds with one another and the other four orangutans in the group.

Our surrogate mothers have reported that Monyo has grown more confident and quickly adapts to new environments and faces. He is not afraid of climbing trees but will usually stop at one or two meters off the ground.

We are looking forward to seeing Monyo, alongside his friends, face new challenges, improve his skill set and gain more independence.

 

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.
