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


$100.00 / year

Tommy has something truly special about him. He is a sweet, affectionate orangutan. Inquisitive by nature, he is always calm and moves around with a deliberate and determined manner, charming anyone lucky enough to meet him.

Tommy’s beautiful paisley-shaped eyes stare out at the world like liquid brown pools. When those big dark eyes look up at you, your heart just melts. He will reach out from his enclosure and warmly take a visitor’s hand, eyeing him or her curiously.

Tommy is physically fit and healthy. He was a famously picky eater, so we are delighted that he is now clapping and making noisy demands for food. He especially loves mangoes, rambutans and bananas, and receives a little extra milk with some added syrup as a special treat. Sweet potatoes and corn are also high on the list.

The past year has seen big changes for Tommy. He, along with his best friend Valentino, moved to a new “pondok” (camp) to start the next stage in his rehabilitation. There was no way these two could be split up. They have settled in nicely and made themselves quite at home. Whenever they are out together, if you find one, the other is sure to be close by.
