A little about Jordan

Jordan came from Banjarmasin in South Kalimantan in November 2001. He was a little over a year old and weighed 5,6 kilo. His hair was sparse and short, but his gleaming white teeth would have done any dentist proud to have him as patient. He had a very bad flu and a high fever and it took us a couple of days to figure out the fever was not caused the flu, but by malaria. Jordan is not a great climber. As of January 2002 he has yet to climb higher than two meters and for longer than fifteen minutes at a time. He loves to sit with a caretaker in the hammock but has the unfortunate habbit that if he wants to play or if there is something he really wants he nips your skin with his teeth… which has caused much swearing amongst his many mothers. He likewise loves to pull his friends out of the trees and then playfight with them on the ground. His curiosity is bottomless and everything has to be explored, sniffed and stuffed in the mouth. When inside in the babyhouse everything that can be open will be opened. Jordans most known characteristic is stealing milkbottles from his friends whether he wants to drink it or not. Is he jealous or just having fun!?

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.
