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 orangutan with a big personality, Charlie has a special face for his every mood, charming everyone he meets with his individuality and his big, expressive eyes. Charlie is somewhat mercurial. One moment he is introspective and calm and the next he is playful and impulsive.

Charlie is a big boy now and has grown to the point where he dwarfs his peers.
He is a formidable sight as he shakes his sleeping enclosure to show his eagerness to emerge out into the forest. Upon leaving his enclosure Charlie props himself up on all fours and truly shows off his strong physique, conjuring up an image of King Kong atop the Empire State Building. Charlie inspires awe as his head appears, encompassed by huge shoulders and a seemingly never-ending arm span, his long arms covered in a thick, shaggy coat of hair.
