COVID-19 - Special precautions being undertaken to ensure the health and safety of orangutans


$100.00 / year

Charlie arrived at the OFI Care Centre in 2012. He could not have been much older than one and a half years of age. The OFI Rescue Team travelled the long distance to Palangka Raya, a ten-hour drive, to rescue him.

A sociable, easy going orangutan, Charlie has a special face for his every mood. He is a funny boy, charming everyone he meets with his individuality and his big, expressive eyes. He is often the instigator of games or play fighting with his peers. Charlie loves investigating pockets. If there is a treat hidden in a caregiver’s pocket, you can bet that Charlie will be the first to try to find it!

Charlie embodies many characteristics of a young active orangutan, namely running around, wrestling with his pals and getting muddy! On hot days, it is not uncommon to see Charlie diving headfirst into a little forest puddle. He loves to spend time in these puddles, sucking up water with his mouth and then pushing the water out in between his pursed lips.
