Puspa is a rescued baby orangutan with a good reason to be happy. She is one of 48 lucky animals rescued by the Sumatran Orangutan Conservation Programme,  located in Indonesia. With deforestation, forest firespalm oil plantations, and the cruel illegal pet trade all posing serious threats to wild orangutans, this organization is working tirelessly to help. As orangutans lose their native habitats, many are left vulnerable without a place to go. When baby orangutans are separated from their mothers, they have little chance of survival on their own. Like human children, orangutans cannot walk or feed themselves until they’re around two years old. Thankfully, the Sumatran Orangutan Conservation Programme actively rescues and rehabilitates orphaned orangutans, giving them all they need to successful adults.

This little one seems to have gotten the important art of climbing down and it won’t be long until she’s back swinging in the trees of her native home. Her excitement and sheer joy is absolutely infectious!

While Puspa makes rehabilitation look easy, the organization explains that there is a lot that goes into the process of recovery and securing a safe place for release efforts. They are currently looking to release eight of the orangutans in their care – but are in need of financial help. If you would like to contribute to this worthwhile cause, you may visit their donation page here.
