Lou’s Enrichment Program in Samboja

April 10th 2014

Today was bamboo enrichment day, small bamboo sticks filled with cooked oatmeal with sunflower seeds and a dash of honey.

Some we froze and others we threw over as a late afternoon treat.

Many visitors here today so a nice way for them to end the day watching Orangutans demonstrate tool use!

How Can You Help

There are lots of ways you can support orangutans and help ensure the survival of this precious ape.

Adopt an Orangutan

Adopt an Orangutan

Orangutans are endangered and at risk of extinction. Habitat destruction means hundreds of orphan orangutans need to care for every year. You can help by adopting one. Their dedicated ‘nannies’ teach them everything they need to know for when it’s time to release them back to the wild. You can follow their progress through Forest School.
