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.
