The Bornean orangutan is an endangered species, with deforestation, palm oil plantations and hunting posing a serious threat to its continued existence.
Monte had been kept illegally as a pet by his owners since he was a baby, and spent all this time in a small cage. Because of this, his legs have been permanently damaged.
“He's the saddest orangutan I have ever seen.”
- Karmele Llano Sanchez
International Animal Rescue Veterinary Director
The team at International Animal Rescue saved Monte in 2010.
He now enjoys his days swinging, climbing and eating papaya leaf enrichment packages at the Orangutan Rescue and Rehabilitation Centre in Indonesia.
