Breaking New Baby News! Orangutan Born!

Subis, our 26-year-old Sumatran orangutan, gave birth at around 2pm yesterday.

The healthy youngster is being cared for by mum in our Realm of the Red Ape.

This is the fourth baby for Subis and our keepers say she is doing a great job so far. More news and pics to follow in the coming days...

Pictured is Tripa, another baby Sumatran orangutan who was born to Subis’s sister Emma just two months ago!

 

Find out more about how we support orangutans in Sumatra as part of our Act for Wildlife programme.
