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 orphan was separated from his mother in a way that most certainly left him distressed and confused. His mother was probably killed. Tiny Koling looks up with those large innocent eyes and appears a little lost, looking for love and care. Luckily Ibu Sopi, his primary caregiver, is there to help him on his way.

Koling was checked and pronounced healthy after arrival at OFI’s Orangutan Care Centre and Quarantine. He has thick, shiny hair, healthy skin and a little pot belly. After the mandatory month-long quarantine period, Koling was brought to his new home, Camp Danielle. This is where the orphan infants live together. Here he will stay for the next stage of his life as he grows and develops the skills he needs to survive in the wild. Already Koling has lost the dazed look he had on arrival and now looks cheerful!

As he clings to her, Ibu Sopi carries Koling to the Camp Danielle playground. Koling is still a little small to be included in the main group, but he doesn’t like to be left alone. He cries when by himself so there is always someone nearby. He has many adoring caregivers who are happy to pass him around. They provide him with the warmth and support Koling would normally get from his mother.
