Rocky and Okto
- Published on Wednesday, 04 February 2015
Rocky - once the pet of a taxi driver, enjoying rides in the taxi and meals of local 'Nasi Padang' - has made, what some people would consider, an impossible transition back to the wild.
This shows that an orangutan - even if kept as a pet for many years - can still be successfully released back into the wild.
Though Rocky now spends most of his time in the surrounding forest, when he does return to Camp, he has taken Okto (a small male in soft release) under his wing! This is rewarding as Okto now has a mentor.
