Orangutan orphans

I believe Kesi is at the end of this video:

What will you tell your children when the orangutans are extinct?  Watch this video.

The following video has some wonderful shots of orangutans.  It is informative but also entertaining:

Kesi – More Pictures

Hi,

I believe Kesi is at the end of this video:

I just found this site where they put up a lot of photos of Kesi.  There are quite a few of her and other orangutans at the Nyaru Menteng Center.  They are beautiful photographs.  Please check them out.

Here are more pictures.  Can you find Kesi among them? http://www.onasia.com/content/story.aspx?storyID=469&page=1

Don’t these orangutans look relaxed and contented? Unlike ones in captivity.

Unfortunately, this little one could end up on Orangutan Island or worse if we don’t do something about its habitat now.

And, this one could end up in a small cage the rest of its life.

Never learning how to make a nest.

Never just hanging around their wild world.

Never feeding in the wild as God meant.

Never living in their native habitat.

Or just having the opportunity to do what wild orangutans would do.

Donate to your favorite orangutan program today because tomorrow may be too late.

Orangutan Island

I’ve been keeping up on the show Orangutan Island.  I didn’t think I would get into each character as much as I did with Meerkat Manor.  But, then Cha Cha disappeared and even Lone couldn’t find her for most of the episode last week.  I knew I was involved as I let out a sign of relief when Cha Cha finally showed up.  And, was delighted when she didn’t cling to Lone as she did the day Lone had to leave her on the island.  I guess I’m hooked.

The “actors” in this reality show are The Bandit Boys (Rocky, Mercury, Saturnus, Togar, Milo and Donald), Bonita (The Fragile One), Cha Cha (The Social Butterfly), Chen Chen (The Pirate), Daisy (The Scrapper), Donald (The Apprentice), Hamlet (The Intruder), Jasmine (The Femme Fatale), Jordan (The Socially Challenged), Nadi (The Alarm Bell) and Saturnus (The Clown) — also part of The Bandit Boys.

The previews for next week are hilarious and there may be love in the air.

Check out the preview for next week and past weeks videos here:  http://animal.discovery.com/beyond/?playerId=203719213&categoryId=210013718

After watching these entertaining creatures you’ll have a hard time not making that decision to adopt one or more and help save their habitat and their lives.

So, I can’t finish without giving you the link to where you can adopt Kesi or one of the other irresistible orangutans at the center.  Click on Kesi below and adopt an orangutan TODAY!

Adopt Kesi

Orangutan Fun at Nyaru Menteng

Isn’t it amazing how many orangutans are at the Nyaru Menteng center that need help?

Just think every one of these orangutans in the video should be with their mother in the wild.

Don’t forget to adopt an orangutan and make their and your life a little better.
