Mores, a resident of Camp JL in the Lamandau Wildlife Reserve, Indonesian Borneo, had been spotted actively feeding and moving around the surrounding areas on a regular basis in recent months by our field team.
Although she was identified as being pregnant, a due date for her newborn was unknown until our local staff were able to capture the following shots of her with her baby holding on tight:
This is Mores’s third child after giving birth to Marcell and Martin in previous years- a positive indication to the health of Lamandau Wildlife Reserve for breeding orangutan mothers.
To continue the ‘M’ lineage, and as the newborn has been identified as a female, the newborn has been named Marsha. Our team hope to continue to keep an eye on their progress going forward.
