People from a remote village in the interior of Borneo claimed to have found tiny Lear at the bottom of a tree. When Lear first arrived at the Care Center, he was a mere 2.8kg (about 6lbs). Lear loves his time playing in the forest! Maturing into a sweet natured juvenile orangutan, Lear is growing bigger and increasing his forest skills. Lear often constructs nests in the trees during his forest time. Knowing how to make a nest is a crucial skill for any young orangutan to have!
