Give a baby orangutan a hand (or vine)
A baby orangutan hangs and swings on a vine at Borneo’s Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Center, which was founded in 1964 with the mission of rehabilitating rescued orangutans.
These bulky, rust-colored primates are the largest arboreal animals on Earth. In the wild, they eat, sleep, socialize, reproduce and travel almost exclusively in the thick, leafy canopies of Sumatra and Borneo. Although baby orangutans spend the first four months of life clutching their mother’s body, it isn’t long before they begin learning to climb on their own.
