For years Mamat had been living on a chicken farm where he was kept in a very small cage. He arrived at the Sintang Orangutan Centre severely undernourished. He hardly had any strength in his arms and legs and could only lay flat on the floor. Now Mamat’s rehabilitation is underway. With your support he’ll grow stronger every day and soon return to the trees.
For years Mamat had been living on a chicken farm in Singkawang, West Kalimantan where he was kept in a very small cage.
He was brought to the Sintang Orangutan Center by the Indonesian Ministry of Forestry. When he arrived at the Sintang Orangutan Centre he was severely undernourished. He hardly had any strength in his arms and legs and could only lay flat on the floor or more forward by rolling.
