Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre is situated in the State of Sabah in Borneo and sits on the edge of the Kabili forest reserve.It was set up by an Englishwoman some 50 years ago and was the first Centre in the world to dedicate itself to the rehabilitation of orphaned orang-utans. The site is 43 sq km of protected land at the edge of Kabili Sepilok Forest Reserve. Today around 60 to 80 orangutans are living free in the reserve.

Facts about Oerangutans:
Fruit makes up the bulk of an orang-utan’s diet, however other items include leaves, flowers, pith, fungi, honey, termites, small mammals and birds’ eggs.
Adult orang-utans are largely solitary.
The bond between a mother orang-utan and her young is very strong.
