Photo by @TimLaman on assignment for @NatGeo at the International Animal Rescue center in Ketapang, West Kalimantan, Indonesia. These baby orangutans are being cared for at this center, and are being taken by wheelbarrow from their night cages to a forest play area where they will spend their day learning skills to survive in the wild. Unfortunately, many baby orangutans are still kept illegally as pets, and obtained by killing their mothers in the wild. When confiscated, they end up at centers like this that do their best to care for them and train them for living in the wild some day. It is a severe challenge, but some of them may make it to live in the wild. #Borneo, #Orangutan, @TimLaman, @thephotosociety
