Baby Orangutan Rickina

Little Rickina is a baby orangutan that was rescued from a suspected poacher, and is now being cared for at the Ketapang Orangutan Rescue Center, operated by International Animal Rescue. As a critically endangered orphan, she’s had a very difficult life, but this video shares a bit about the safe community that she’s now adjusting to. For more information, visit RedApes.org.

There are more babies and a family of orangutans in the archives.
