Orangutan Pre-School: Traumatised Baby Ape On Road To Recovery

An orphaned orangutan who was illegally taken from her mother in the wild has found a new home at a pre-school set up for rescued orangutans. Named Joss by keepers, the tiny female was psychologically traumatised when she arrived at the rescue centre in Ketapang in the West Kalimantan province of Borneo, Indonesia. The baby ape, who is just a few months old, was rescued by International Animal Rescue (IAR) in January this year from a local who had paid £25 for Joss – despite it being illegal in Indonesia to own orangutans as pets. But despite experiencing extreme hardship, baby Joss is now on the road to recovery and is making friends at the pre-school. To find out more about International Animal Rescue and the work they’re doing please visit their website http://www.internationalanimalrescue….
