Meet Simona, a young female orangutan (estimated 3 years old) that rescued from south west Aceh in October 2017.
Glad to see Simona here so active in the forest school at Sumatran Orangutan Conservation Programme (SOCP) Quarantine Center. At the beginning, it's been a challenging for the vet and the keeper to rehabilitate her mental and train her wildlife skills, since she was too humanize, get so close with people. She liked to play on the ground, even get used to walk bipedal instead of walking quadripedal like a wild orangutan.
Now, Simona is already in the socialization enclosure with other young orangutans, and has shown much improvement. She start to take a distance with human by throwing someting, and also walk quadripedal and swing in the trees. Soon, Simona will be ready to be released in the wild.
