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. If there is play fighting you can guarantee that Ryan is in the middle of it. If there is a rumour that a caregiver has a treat in their pocket, Ryan is in the group jostling to find it.

Ryan is constantly on the move. Capable of unbridled warmth and heart tugging affection at one moment, then adrenaline fuelled crashing around the forest the next. Easily identifiable due to his dark orange hair that glows purple in the sun, it is not hard to locate Ryan when he is playing high up in the trees. So quick are his movements that his caregivers have a hard time keeping track of him. Suffering from what could be called a terminal case of forest fever, Ryan shoots off into the trees whenever he can.
