Foster Crystal


The end of 2019 closed the door on one year but saw OFI’s Orangutan Care Center and Quarantine (OCCQ) in Central Borneo open its doors to a new arrival. Meet Crystal, an orphaned female orangutan who was rescued and brought to the OCCQ when she was barely a year old. With a thick head of hair and a face full of attitude, it didn’t take long for Crystal to make an impression. Every orangutan who arrives at the OCCQ must undergo a mandatory 30-day quarantine. After this quarantine Crystal went straight to Camp Danielle, the infant facility. Every orangutan infant has at least one surrogate mother and Crystal’s is Ibu Eteng. Ibu Eteng is devoted to her new charge and has happily committed herself to help guide and develop Crystal’s skills for the wild. (The photo attached was taken when rescued)
