I’m so pleased to be able to wish you a Happy New Year and give you a little update on your adopted orangutan.

I recently spent two weeks at our BORA rescue and rehabilitation centre in East Kalimantan. The purpose of my visit was to spend time with the staff and share my orangutan experience and knowledge with them regarding orangutan behaviour, enrichment, nutrition, welfare, and training for release into the wild

I was so impressed with the dedication and commitment of the staff in preparing these orangutans for release. It is thanks to your generous support that these precious orphaned orangutans have a second chance at returning to their true jungle home.

Meanwhile, over in Sumatra, Siti is doing well and continues to love her Jungle School outings. She spends a lot of her time playing when out in the jungle, especially with her sidekick Sudin. Siti also enjoys socialising with other young orangutans including Jelly Bean, Vanilla and Rosi. She is scared of Jelly Bean’s mother named Jeky because she will sometimes chase and bite her. Siti is excellent at foraging for different forest foods and has been devouring tapus flowers and liana fruits lately.

Thank you so much for helping Siti on her journey to forest freedom.
