The Orangutans of Spring 2014

Amoi and Alex

Amoi, a female orangutan needing rehabilitation was based at and released from Camps Siswoyo in Lamandau Wildlife Reserve from July, 2003. As she’s grown confidence in the wild she was often seen around Camp Gemini, not far from Camp Siswoyo. After a failed birth in 2007, we were glad to see her give birth again in May 2013 to the healthy ‘Alex’. Now Alex is 10 months old – Amoi has been encouraging her to hold on to tree trunks – hopely she’ll be up high with mum in the fruiting trees by summer! Amoi is a very caring mother – she even brushes of mosquitoes away using twigs and leaves.

Mantra, Max and MC

Mantra, is a female that’s been with us at Camp Siswoyo since 4th July 2003, along with her son Max. Camp Gemini is popular – Mantra along with Amoi now hangout in the forest near this camp. As Max is now growing up strong and confident, enough time has passed for Mantra to give birth again to MC – a little female on May 23, 2008. Both Max and MC are healthy – brother and sister always stay together.

Ivan and Yuli

Ivan is already about 3 years old, rescued and brought to Camp Rasak in March 2013. With us for one year, he is making great progress in the soft release programme. He has made very good friends with Yuli - an orangutan of the same age, who share a protective cage over night. They need the cage at night for their own safety. They spend their days together, learning the forest skills needed for a life in the wild, finding food, building nests and improving their climbing skills.
