cute cute baby orang utan in Sabah

exercise time. 1,2,3....

i think i am very fortunate because i have the chance to travel and have a lots of unforgettable and 'intimate' experience with animals.

in year 2005( that time , i was a fourth year vet student), my coursemates and i were accepted to do our practical in Sepilok Orang Utan Rehabilitation Centre, Sandakan. The Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre was established in year 1964 to return orphaned apes back to the wild.The centre has a reception centre, information centre, offices for wildlife staff, an animal clinic, quarantine area and enclosures for various animals such as the rhinoceros and sun bears.

basically, what we did during our practical were be a good baby sitter for cute baby orang utans. haha. bottle-feeding them with milk, changing napkins, preparing food for older orang utans.when we were free, we would bring babies out for climbing practice. putting them on rope and let them climbing in order to make their arms stronger and prepare to let them back to nature.

feels very warm with him in my arm

yummy yummy time

comfortably sitting in a hammock prepared by the lovely staff

haha... bringing them out to jalan jalan makan angin

look at them. they are so innocent. but, they lost their homes and mothers and got to stay in orphan home. we can do something for them. if you go to Sabah, do pay a visit to Sepilok Orang Utan Rehabilitation Centre. for more details, please visit
