Most of the orphaned orangutans who arrive at the Orangutan Care Center and Quarantine (OCCQ) are at first shy and bewildered. It takes time for the caregivers to earn their trust and to give the newly arrived orangutan orphans their self-esteem back. Not so with Proudfoot. Despite the circumstances in which she arrived at the care center as a recently orphaned infant, Proudfoot was and is a healthy orangutan developing apace. The moment she was brought to the infant nursery, Camp Danielle, it was all the caregivers could do to contain her energy and enthusiasm for life. The caregivers were instantly taken with this precious, precocious baby. One cannot help but be transfixed by her dark liquid-pool eyes or admire her thick hair that glows in the sunlight with a fine russet hue.
