      Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre

      December 17, 2016 in Malaysia ⋅ ⛅ 28 °C

      With some 40 sq km of forest, the centre has no fence boundaries to keep the orangutans in so they are free to roam where they want. Very lucky to see so many of these amazing animals that share so many human characteristics. The feeding platform and open nursery gave close up views but not as close up as the ones who we shared the walkways with! A very amusing highlight was following one of them along the walkway and when it reached a short gate that read 'no entry', it ever so gently lifted the bolt latch and slid the bolt along before slowly opening the gate to walk through and then gently letting go of the latch. One of them had taken a liking to the ornamental bamboo plants at the front entrance. We also saw what we think was a rat snake, that was about 2 meters long, sliding along the ground until it hid under the board walk we were stood on.Read more
