Bembi was being kept as a pet before she brought to the Sintang Orangutan Center by the Indonesian Ministry of Forestry. She was underweight and weighed only 5kg. Now with a proper diet and lots of exercise she’s begun to thrive. When you adopt Bembi you will ensure she receives the many years of care and training she needs to support her return to the wild.

What your Adoption will help us to do:
With your support Bembi will be provided with ongoing love and care. She will mix with the other Orangutans at the Sintang Orangutan Center and will have an appropriate enclosure, food and medical care and access to the rehabilitation programs at the Tembak Forest School. The Sintang Orangutan Center employs a General Manager, two veterinarians and six Orangutan keepers. Funds donated through adoption of the Orangutans are used to cover these expenses and to provide her with a great quality of life and eventually a return to the wild.
