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


$100.00 / year

The end of 2019 closed the door on one year but saw OFI’s Orangutan Care Centre and Quarantine (OCCQ) in Central Borneo open its doors to a new arrival. Meet Crystal, an orphaned female orangutan who was rescued and brought to the Care Centre when she was barely a year old. With a thick head of hair and a face full of attitude, this little orangutan is full of energy and joie de vivre.

Every orangutan infant at the Care Centre has a human surrogate mother and Crystal’s is Ibu Eteng. Ibu Eteng is devoted to her new charge and is happily committed to helping guide and develop Crystal’s skills for the wild.

Initially Crystal spent much of her time leaning on her stuffed toy animal, patrolling back and forth inside the infant nursery establishing her “territory”, but she is developing apace under the watchful eyes of her caregivers. And those eyes have to be alert and fast as Crystal races around the entire Camp Danielle area. She is one active youngster! She has a keen curiosity and plenty of youthful energy to burn.
