Product Description

sample-inserts5-foster-kit-ofi Krista’s arrival at OFI’s Care Center is unique – she was born there. Sadly, Krista’s mother rejected her shortly after birth. Ever since, Krista has been raised among other orangutans similar in age. She has a beautiful, benign face that can make you turn your head and an equally captivating personality. When she is taken out for daily forest releases, Krista prefers walking with two caregivers. She takes both by the hand, dangles from their arms, and sticks both of her legs straight out, scuffing them lightly over the forest trail. Her caregivers jokingly refer to this behavior as “skiing.” Krista’s charming personality and story make her a very unique orangutan.

Additional Information

Why Foster an Orangutan?

By becoming an Orangutan Foster Parent, you will help care for the displaced and orphaned orangutans at the OFI Care Centre and Quarantine (OCCQ) facility, during their rehabilitation back to the wild. As a Foster Parent you will contribute to providing the medical, dietary and emotional care that the orangutans need to thrive.

What is included in a kit?

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.
