The end of 2019 closed the door on one year but saw OFI’s Orangutan Care Centre and Quarantine in Central Borneo open 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, which are developing apace. 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 journeys back and forth between the two Camp Danielle playgrounds. For someone who often plays by herself Crystal has plenty of friends! One moment she is playing with her friends in the playground as they roll around the floor happily grabbing at one another, the next she is at the top of the playground chilling in a barrel or playing in a tyre, and then suddenly she is in the long grass leading away into the forest. Before we know it, Crystal has ventured far into the Learning Forest and is in the trees.
