Are You Looking At Us?? Orangutans, Sepilok, Borneo by 


Female Orangutan (Pongo pygmaeus) with baby in the jungle at Semenggoh Rehabilitation Center, Sarawak, East Malaysia, Borneo, South East Asia. The average body mass for an adult female is around 38 kilograms. These animals are endangered due to habitat destruction mainly due to the establishement of Palm Oil plantations. Help protect these animals and others by avoiding processed food and other products which include Palm Oil.
Canon 450D, zoom lens.

    I love this…so precious and beautiful…Actually I just saw the film “Born to be Wild 3D” in Imax and it showed orphaned orangutans being cared for in a special place by this woman in Borneo…so I’m dying to go there now!

    Thank you Marie and Susan. Carole-Anne
    A visit to the Orangutans is just great – both Sepilok and Semenggoh rehabilitation centres are worth visits. We had 2 visits to one and 3 visits to the other to make sure that we saw a number of different animals. Visits are limited to 2 hours in the morning and 2 hours in the afternoon. Since the animals have been released into the jungle there are no guarantees; but we saw various individuals on each visit and we also saw an amazing troop of Short-tailed Macaques (monkeys). Both these centres are in the Malaysian part of Borneo. There are also rehab centres in the Indonesian part of Borneo. Carole-Anne
