Valentino arrived at our Nyaru Menteng sanctuary on Valentine’s Day of 2015, hence his cute name.
He was just five to six months old when a rubber tree farmer rescued him by the bank of a river. Valentino was covered in wounds and extremely malnourished, weighing only 2.2 kilograms.
Today he is a cheeky male orangutan, who has honed his basic survival skills for a future life in the wild, such as climbing trees, foraging for natural food, building nests and identifying predators.
Valentino is one of the stars on the awarded documentary series “Orangutan Jungle School” on Stan.
