Become a Foster Parent to “Karbank”

Karbank may seem a little shy when he first leaves his night enclosure and is taken out into the forest, letting go of his caretaker’s hand in a hesitating manner. Surprisingly, when he was first brought to the Care Center, he was not at all interested in human contact and seemed very "wild."

However, as soon as Karbank reaches the first trees, he boldly takes off to explore. While other orangutans like to take a break in the shade of the little shelter we built in the forest, Karbank never rests and is constantly climbing, foraging, and building small day nests somewhere deep in the forest.

There are days when Karbank is hardly seen by his caregivers at all because he’s so high up in the forest canopy.

However when Karbank does come down, he’s very sweet and never “naughty.” He likes to play with the other orangutans and never gets aggressive. His favorite foods are bananas and young leaves.

Each Foster Parent Intro Kit includes an adoption certificate, the biography of your foster orangutan, a recent photo of your foster orangutan, an information sheet about orangutans, and other promotional materials. Foster Parents receive updates every six months with a progress report on how their orangutan is doing as well as a new photo.
