More about ORANGUTAN ISLANDS
Some of our orangutans live on six man-made islands (a nice walk from Samboja lodge). The island orangutans are not releasable and we have placed them on these island so they can live comfortably in semi-wild environment. Every day our team delivers many kind of fruits, vegetables and leafy branches.
