Meet the 2nd Release Candidate: Komeng

Komeng is one of two fully flanged (cheek-pads already developed) wild male orangutans which we will be releasing in March.  Komeng arrived at Nyaru Menteng in July 2006, in good health and fully flanged – we estimated his age at approximately 15.

Now Komeng is > 20 years, 82.5 kg, completely healthy and ready to go back to the forest.  We will be observing both Komeng’s (and our other flanged male, Ompong) behavior in the forest.
