Jeni is growing up fast and is almost unrecognisable from the malnourished, ill orangutan who arrived at the centre in 2020. Seeing her now swinging and climbing in the trees, even with her leg injury, brings us great joy. She is staying in Forest School Nursery Group and, with your support, she is able to keep learning how to survive on her own so that she can one day be a candidate for release back into the wild.
Jeni was brought as an infant to the Nyaru Menteng Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre on August 24, 2020. Upon her arrival at the centre, 10-month-old Jeni weighed in at only 5.0 kg. She had dry skin and wounds on the back of one of her legs. From these wounds, it was evident that Jeni had experienced a traumatising time in captivity. In the early days of her quarantine, Jeni had difficulty adjusting to her new surroundings. She was having problems with her leg injury and was showing signs of shock. Our caretakers were determined to ensure that Jeni would feel comfortable and safe in her new environment. Jeni has since made a full recovery and is now beginning to develop natural behaviours.Adopt Jeni
