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 this window into their world, we can see how they are getting along…
Mother Amoi with her one year old Alex
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!
Alex being lifted to be put on her mothers back.
Badut with her little one BB – BB is already ten months old!
BB ; showing off the hair that is so characteristic of this red ape.
Alex learning with mother Amoi. As she’s a year old, Alex is starting to learn which foods are good to eat!
Luxi and with her little Luna. Although smaller, Luna is about the same age as Alex at one year old.
