The Orangutan Project  World's foremost orangtuan conservation not-for-profit ❀️🐡🌏 #theorangutanproject #orangutans #savingorangutans Click to see our latest adoptees πŸ΅πŸ’šπŸ‘‡πŸ»

Hoist baskets - such as the one little Citrawan here is investigating - are used to tempt forest school attendees to climb & explore high up into the forest canopy 🌳
Carers place delicious treats inside the basket πŸ‰πŸŒπŸŽ and orangutans are encouraged to use "tools" like sticks to retrieve the treats.
Such clever cookies!! 😝

It's International Orangutan Day!! 🐡
Today we will be celebrating with extra posts across our social media feeds - so keep an eye out for all the cute orange goodness!! How you will be celebrating this special day? πŸ’– #theorangutanproject #internationalorangtuanday2018

Happi spent two months in quarantine at the COP Borneo Orangutan Rescue Centre undergoing intensive care to regain his health and strength 😷
.
Once well enough, he was moved to the baby socialisation area 🐡 where he could make new friends with other orphaned orangutan babies. Happi met Popi, and they became the best of friends. Happi could be seen to growing with confidence each day with his new friend by his side πŸ’ž
.
Forest school 🌳 was very daunting at first for little Happi at first, and he would often cry out for his mother he was so nervous and scared. Eventually, carers managed to show Happi that the jungle is a fun place, using his favourite fruit, papaya 🍈 he was rewarded daily for being so brave.
.
At barely 2 years old, Happi has such a long way to go until he is able to be released into the protected forests 🌳 – could you support his journey?
You can adopt Happi ❀️ or one of his orphaned friends, and help him learn all the valuable skills he needs to be free again. Visit the link in our bio to find out more!! #theorangutanproject

This is THE CUTEST video you will see all day!! πŸ’•πŸ΅πŸ˜

Did you see our post yesterday?? Suro & her new baby boy were filmed having a bit of a cuddle only a few days after this blonde-beauty was born #socute
.
Don’t forget, you can help us name Suro’s baby 😱 see our previous post and leave your suggestion in the comments section πŸ˜† #theorangutanproject

πŸ”† HELP! I NEED A NAME! πŸ”†
.
This is 11yr new mum Suro, with her precious baby boy πŸ’™ born 2 July at Sungai Pengain, Bukit Tigapuluh...
.
Only a few days before giving birth, there were problems with Suro's radio transmitter, and she had to be brought back to the pre-release enclosure to fix the issue urgently. The vet team fixed the transmitter, and carers were then lucky enough to witness a text-book birth of this little blonde beauty! 😍🐡
.
Both are now back in the jungle 🌳 and doing remarkably well! But this little guy needs a name, and we would LOVE you to help! .
A few key points;
--> his name must start with "S"
--> names with ties to Indonesia or the jungle will be highly regarded
.
Pop your suggestion in the comments section below, and the top 3 will be chosen, with the final name decided by you via a poll within the next week! Good luck! and we cant wait to see what names you come up with! #theorangutanproject

Before Sam became a mum to baby Cupcake, she was living in appalling conditions in a Malaysian zoo…πŸ˜₯ Once rescued in 2013, Sam having lived her entire life in captivity had to learn many new skills to equip her for a life of freedom in the jungle 🌿 She had to learn basic orangutan skills, including how to bulid a nest, what forest foods she can and can’t eat, and even how to navigate the jungle 🌳 using moving branches and vines vs. fixed bars and ropes!!
.
Sam’s story is one of hope πŸ™ This once sad and lonely orangutan forced into entertainment for humans, is now a healthy, happy mum to gorgeous Cupcake! 🐡 It’s thanks to your adoptions and guardianship that these two have now learnt all the important skills for survival in the wild, and we look forward to the day when this adorable family is set free.
.
You can continue to help Sam and Cupcake πŸ’• on their road to freedom by becoming part of our adoption family! You can adopt Sam & Cupcake, or one of our other precious orangutan adoptees, and you can be sure you are contributing to their recovery and pending release.
