OFI Australia Foster Orangutan Kobe

Kobe (Foster Kit)

$100.00 / year

Cute, very sweet, and cuddly, Kobe was rescued in 2014 by Dr. Biruté Mary Galdikas. When Kobe first arrived at the Care Centre, she was very young.

Kobe is a fast learner, adaptable, and easy-going, and impresses her care givers with the confident way she embraces her rehabilitation.

Kobe is ‘Little Miss Independent’ and loves her time to explore and play in the forest. This little orangutan sure knows what she wants and goes for it. Kobe very much enjoys exploring the OFI Nursery Forest and often prefers to do so alone. Each morning as her care giver carries her out to the forest, Kobe is squirming in her impatience to dive into the forest. With her eagerness to get that first grip on the branches in the canopy has come a revelation that the quickest way she can reach the trees from the playground is by somersaulting all the way! Aided with this knowledge, she will not fail to do so at the start of every release. It’s a daily adventure!
