The young orangutans in our soft-release programme are going from strength to strength.
Mona and Adib are the best of playmates, they like to play-fight and swing around in the trees. Mona (on the right) is always the first to instigate the game, approaching Adib (left) and then the fun begins! Our staff take all of the young orphaned orangutans into the forest each day to play and learn the skills needed to survive in the wild.
