Jeffrey Jnr - foster kit

Jeffrey Junior (Foster Kit)

$100.00 / year

Jeffrey Junior was only seven months old when he was brought to the Orangutan Care Centre and Quarantine (OCCQ) in early 2017 by police who had confiscated him from people keeping him as a pet. We do not know exactly what had happened to him, but it’s clear he had been through a lot in his little life.

Weighing in at just 3.5kgs (approx. 8lbs) upon his arrival, Jeffrey suffered several seizures a day during his first weeks at the OCCQ. He was very traumatized and the staff were not sure whether he would make it. One day the seizures got so bad that Jeffrey lost his heartbeat and we all thought that he would die. But little Jeffrey is a fighter and he was not ready to give up just yet!

The medical team took care of Jeffrey around the clock throughout his first few weeks at the Care Centre. After a month the seizures declined in frequency and Jeffrey started to gain weight.

Veterinary technician Pak Jeremy had bonded with Jeffrey and thus accompanied him on his first day to “forest school”. When little Jeffrey got to touch his first leaves, the look on his face was priceless. He smelled the leaves, tasted them, put them on his head, and had the equivalent of a big smile on his face all along.
