Infant orphan Mason came to the Care Center in 2009 as a tiny bundle of orange. He must have been only a few months old at the time. But over the last year he has grown considerably. He is still very shy. Whenever a human stranger arrives at the nursery, Mason hides up in a tree or clings behind his caregiver’s back. If a caregiver is not immediately available for protection, Mason clings tightly to one of his night enclosure roommates: Walman, Lia or Savitri.
We are very pleased with Mason’s growth and development. In time Mason will find more courage and become an independent and fearless orangutan. Despite his shyness, we can already see those qualities in him. Please consider following Mason’s progress by adopting him.

As a Foster Parent you will contribute to providing the medical, dietary and emotional care that the orangutans need to thrive. Your foster purchase is also tax-deductible and you will be sent an official tax acknowledgment letter from OFI.
