Meet the 2nd Release Candidate: Bang Jagur

Bang Jagur was rescued from an oil palm plantation around Sampit in 2006.  He arrived in a healthy condition and we estimated he was between 7-8 years old weighing 18 kg.  Bang Jagur is a wild orangutan who seriously does not like to be around people.  Now he is approximately 15 years old, though not yet developed his cheek-pads, weighs 40.2 kg, is healthy and ready to go back to the forest.
