OFI Australia foster orangutan Tommy


$100.00 / year

Tommy has something truly special about him. He is a sweet, gentle and shy orangutan yet he is also inquisitive by nature. He is always calm and moves around with a deliberate and determined manner. Tommy knows what he wants, where he wants to be and whom he wants to be with. He charms anyone who is lucky enough to meet him. When he pouts with his pudgy soft lips and his big, round dark eyes look up at you, your heart just melts.

Although small compared to his peers, Tommy is strong and has a good appetite. He is currently housed in his own sleeping enclosure, to ensure he gets enough food to eat, and does not need to compete with any of the bigger orangutans.  He especially loves mangoes, rambutans and bananas, and receives a little extra milk with some added syrup as a special treat. When not in the forest, Tommy seems to enjoy his independence, happily entertaining himself with enrichment.
