Dr Fikri, our vet, gave us a lovely surprise when he reported about the birth of an orangutan in the Lamandau River Wildlife Reserve, in March.
The mother orangutan, Tiffany, was observed at Camp JL, an orangutan release camp run by the Orangutan Foundation. Staff tried to determine the sex of the new born but Tiffany was very protective of her son and fled when approached by field staff. On one occasion the staff managed to see that the sex of the baby is male. Up to now both Tiffany and her new baby are healthy and well.
Enjoy the pics!
Please help us to keep these orangutans save by supporting our Habitat Protection Guard Post Appeal
Sorry for the long silence. We thought you might like to see some photos taken in the Lamandau River Wildlife Reserve ( in Central Kalimantan, Indonesian Borneo) by our intrepid Patrol Manager, Jakir. He took some fantastic photos of the birds who have come to nest at Danau Burung, where the Orangutan Foundation have a guard post.
