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


$100.00 / year

At the end of 2019 OFI opened its doors to a new arrival. Orphaned female orangutan Crystal 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, who is devoted to her new charge and is happily committed to helping guide and develop Crystal’s skills for the wild. Crystal is one active youngster! She races around Camp Danielle, the infant nursery, with a keen curiosity and plenty of youthful energy to burn, investigating anything of interest.

Crystal shares her sleeping enclosure with her pals Vida, Royal, and Proudfoot. These four amigos are practically inseparable and always up for a good time. Crystal especially likes to tumble around with longtime playmate Vida. The two stick closely to each other in the forest and love to play hide and seek. But Crystal is friend to one and all and also enjoys playing with the younger orangutans who look up to her for guidance. She readily takes on the big sister role to the youngsters, showing them the ropes (both literally and figuratively).
