Baby Orangutan Rickina!

Rickina is being cared for at the IAR Ketapang Orangutan Rescue Center in West Kalimantan (Indonesian Borneo). The center is operated by Orangutan Outreach's partners International Animal Rescue.

Rickina was confiscated from a man who claimed that he had encountered a mother orangutan with the baby in the forest, and that the mother was so startled that she abandoned the baby and ran away. The man picked up the baby and in doing so apparently caused a gaping wound on her head with his machete.... A mother orangutan will NEVER leave her infant behind and will fight to the death to protect her baby from aggressors. So what really happened?

Orangutans are critically endangered in the wild because of rapid deforestation and the expansion of palm oil plantations into their rainforest home. If nothing is done to protect them, they will be extinct in just a few years. Visit the Orangutan Outreach website to learn more and make a difference!
