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


$100.00 / year

Sweet little Koling arrived as a small baby. An all too familiar story saw him brought to us from a palm oil plantation. Named after the village next to where he was rescued, this tiny orphan was separated from his mother in a way that most certainly left him distressed and confused. His mother was more than probably killed. Koling looked up with those large innocent eyes and appeared a little lost, looking for love and care. Luckily Ibu Sopi, his human surrogate mother, is there to help him on his way.

Koling was checked and pronounced healthy on arrival at OFI’s Orangutan Care Centre. He has thick, shiny hair, healthy skin and a little pot belly. After the mandatory quarantine period, Koling was brought to his new home, Camp Danielle. This is where the orphan infants live together. He is one of the smallest orangutans at Camp Danielle amongst, sadly, a growing number of baby orphans. Already Koling has lost the dazed look he had on arrival and now looks cheerful!

Outgoing Koling has a joy of life with a mind that demands to be kept active. He barely sits still. Unless he is happily napping in his private quarters, Koling is usually busy tussling with his best friend is Sugar. These two are practically inseparable. Their favourite pastime is wrestling, rolling around on the ground and gently biting one another. That doesn’t mean Koling isn’t self-reliant. As he continues to grow, Koling’s evolution is evident. Once reliant on the comforting embrace of caregivers, he now brims with newfound courage, navigating the playground with a zest for exploration. The once-tearful transitions between playgrounds are now seamless, and he even sometimes dares to walk into the bushes alone.
