Swinging orangutan

Report 2013: Part 2 - 03

Semenggoh wildlife rehabilitation center holds 14 males and 13 females of orangutans. All of them are Bornean, estimated remaining 45,000 to 69,000 in wild.

They are free to live here although the staff offers foods twice a day.

They tend to disappear to feeding area in rainy season, October to April, for enough fruits the wild jungle offers.

We were so lucky to meet several orangutans swinging to cross the rope among jungle trees in this late October.
