Amazing orangutans pictures…

These wonderful photos have just been sent to us from the field, all taken by Foundation staff in the protected Lamandau Wildlife Reserve. These re-introduced individuals, some who were re-introduced years ago, are now well known by the Foundation staff. Many of the females have had offspring since their re-introduction to the Reserve, living in a safe and healthy environment. With┬áthis window into their world, we can see how they are getting along…

It is important that Alex learns quickly. Whilst she is with her mother, Amoi, she can afford to make a few mistakes, though obviously tree-navigation won’t be a problem!

  1. Absolutely stunning photos. They transports me back to Borneo. Keep up the amazing work you are all doing. Cathy

  2. The clarity of these photos is stunning. It reminds me of the 7 weeks we had in Borneo and the wondrous sights we had of wild and habituated orangs in Kalimantan , Sabah & Sarawak.
    Keep up this stunning work.
