By purchasing a baby orangutan care kit you can help us provide the around-the-clock-care that every single orphaned orangutan requires.
Why are these baby care kits important?
In the wild baby orangutans stay with their mothers for up to eight years. They rely on their mothers to provide continuous care and love as well teach them the skills they need to survive in the wild, such as how to climb, what food to eat, how to make a nest and importantly, how to avoid predators.
Sadly, most of the babies under our care are orphans and arrive in poor health. They are helpless and cannot survive without our care. Each baby requires 24 hour care with their surrogate mothers, our dedicated babysitters and medical team. This involves the same care that human children need – milk, bottles, towels, toys, beds, medicine and of course lots of love and attention. The babies need continuous encouragement and support, especially as many have the physical and mental scars as a result of being torn from their mothers. The good news is, with your help, our orphaned orangutans will grow in confidence and develop the skills needed to one day return to the wild.
