Lanang is growing up to be a healthy and beautiful male orangutan. The skin of his face is already starting to become dark (a sign of leaving infancy behind) but his eyes have remained as warm as ever. As Lanang grows older, he is becoming more and more independent and is finding his own way in the forest. Here he collects a wide variety of fruits and leaves to consume, with a particular interest in rambutan fruit. It is often hard work to keep track of Lanang because he covers such wide areas of forest. When he comes back to the caregivers, however, he lets himself be brought back to his night enclosure without any fuss. He is, indeed, very sweet and gentle.

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.
