Kedaung was estimated to be two years old when he was confiscated from a residence in North Sumatra in April 2013. He had numerous dog bite wounds on his body and was in a serious condition. Fighting for life, he was taken immediately to the SOCP Orangutan Quarantine Centre in North Sumatra where he was given intensive treatment and around the clock care. Thankfully, Kedaung’s fighting spirit showed through and he survived.

Kedaung spent the next three years at the Quarantine Centre where he was given the highest quality care, food and vet treatment if required. He was socialised with other orangutans and became strong and inquisitive. He was transferred to the Sumatran orangutan release site in the Bukit Tigapuluh ecosystem in March 2016 in preparation for release into the Sumatran jungle. 

He has flourished even more in this new environment, readily eating the various food that is provided and defending his food from other orangutans if needed. Kedaung enjoys playing with the various climbing apparatus and toys in the socialisation cages, especially the flexible rubber ropes. He also likes to play rough with other orangutans, rolling and play biting.

Kedaung is being taken out to forest school regularly with his human carers. At five years of age, he is the youngest in jungle school class but he is making great progress. When Kedaung was first taken to the forest he was hesitant to climb however he was soon coaxed into the canopy when his carers placed food in the trees. Kedaung has continued to develop his climbing and foraging skills and he is also learning from more experienced orangutans in the area.
