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


$100.00 / year

Ryan arrived at the OFI Care Centre in 2013 when he was about eighteen months old. We knew his approximate age from his teeth, but he actually looked much younger.

Ryan is a playful, boisterous and very sociable orangutan with a happy disposition and a zest for life. He is quite the entertainer of the Learning Forest, bringing much laughter and joy to his caregivers. When he is not taking long jaunts into the forest, he is seeking action of any kind.

An accomplished forager, he chews on anything edible he can find on the forest floor as he collects a variety of treats, such as young leaves, termites and tender roots. Ryan loves to get dirty. He will sit in the dirt and pour it over his head like a baptism, until you can barely see him save for his blinking brown eyes.

Ryan is constantly on the move. Capable of unbridled warmth and heart tugging affection one moment, then adrenaline fuelled crashing around the forest the next. A forest release with Ryan can be a hectic affair. He is as fast as lightening. To the untrained eye he may look like he is blundering around aimlessly, but Ryan is just trying to experience everything all at once.
