Let's Go to Orangutan Preschool

All aboard the school wheelbarrow! It's time for all little orangutans to go preschool.

International Animal Rescue operates an orangutan orphanage in Indonesia. It rescues orangutans that have been kept illegally as pets or have lost their mothers in the wild. On the 163-acre forested facility, young orangutans socialize with each other and learn essential skills that they'll need when they're grown up.

Without their mothers, orangutans don't learn what's safe to eat, how to climb trees, and how to survive in the wild. Human caretakers do their best to prepare their students for independent life.

I had no idea that baby orangs spent so much time with their mothers. These people are performing a really valuable service to those poor babies.
