Orphan Orang-Utans Join Adoptive Nursery Family at Monkey World 18 Aug 2016


Wild orang-utans suffered yet another blow recently, as it was announced on the IUCN red list of threatened species that the Bornean orang-utan’s status has been upgraded to critically endangered. The Bornean orang-utan now joins his Sumatran cousin in this category, meaning they are at extremely high risk of extinction in the wild. The Sumatran orang-utan dwells only on the island of Sumatra in Indonesia, and has held critically endangered status since 2000, with an estimated wild population of less than 8000. The wild population is under threat from loss of habitat through deforestation, and illegal hunting. Monkey World - Ape Rescue Centre in Dorset is the home to three orphaned Sumatran orang-utans, in its capacity as the official European Orang-utan Crèche. Two of these, Bulu-Mata and Reike, have recently graduated from the crèche to the Orang-utan Nursery, where they are now living full time with their adopted orang-utan family.
