The best birthday present

By Natasha Scott

Having visited Chester Zoo a couple of years before I had absolutely fallen in love with the orang-utans so for my 10th birthday in October 2000 my parents adopted the orang-utans for me. We visited again and spent a magical day at the zoo watching the orang-utans and meeting the keepers. I have visited a number of times since and enjoy seeing all the animals but my heart lies with the beautiful orang-utans. I am hoping to visit Borneo in the not too distant future to see these amazing creatures in their natural habitat.
