Meet the 2nd Release Candidate: Ika

Ika is a female orangutan rescued from an oil plantation in 2006 and actually on the same day we rescued Bunga.   Ika was around 4 ½ years old when she came to Nyaru Menteng with scratches around the ears, skinny and underweight, weighing just 8.5 kg.

Ika is still wild but not particularly aggressive and weighing 31.4 kg, she is healthy and ready for return back to the forest.
