Adopt Natalee

Natalee was born in approximately 2016. She and another young orangutan named Ung Aing were smuggled into Thailand as babies. In December 2020, the Jambi agency for the Conservation of Natural Resources arranged for their repatriation back to Indonesia from a wildlife rescue centre in Thailand. Natalie was in a healthy condition and is quite friendly with staff. Natalee and Ung Aing are very closely bonded.

After undergoing quarantine and a full medical check, these two youngsters made the journey to join the reintroduction program in the Bukit Tigapuluh Ecosystem in Sumatra. Natalee has commenced Jungle School with other orangutans, but stays close to Ung Aing. She doesn’t like to be carried to Jungle School so she will use the ropes to climb from her enclosure to the forest. Natalee is eager to explore the forest and has tried many forest foods including fruits, leaves, cambium and stem. She also enjoys all the food and soy milk given to her by the keepers.

Natalee is learning how to use all the different enrichment items including puzzle boxes and feeder balls to obtain food. The keepers also bring the young orangutans a wide variety of forest fruits, leaves and termites. Natalee doesn’t know how to build a nest yet, but she can learn this skill from other more advanced orangutans at the sanctuary.
