If this video of 16 baby orangutans riding together on a bus is not a serious must-watch, then we don’t know what is! The group of little orphans from the Borneo Orangutan Survival Foundation went on a bit of a journey together with their caretakers and the mode of transportation may seem quite unusual – but it made for the sweetest picture and some fun for the babies, for sure.

The orangutans were traveling on a bus to the organization’s new Baby House. Following several months of construction, the Baby House at the foundation’s Orangutan Reintroduction Center in Nyaru Menteng was opened in August 2017 and soon began to accommodate the babies from the foundation’s Nursery Group. The new complex is equipped with such additions as an indoor playground and enrichment facilities. It also has a special Forest School located close by that is designed especially for the little orangutans!

In their new house, the baby orangutans can enjoy every comfort and entertainment their dedicated team of carers have prepared for them – and begin to acquire the skills they will need in their natural habitat.

I have worried about orangutans for years, ever since I saw a picture of a skeletal mother orangutan and her skeletal baby in a tree with no foliage in a devastated area that had been deforested to make way for palm oil production. It made me sick with anxiety and will haunt me till the day I die. Seeing these fat, healthy babies is a balm to my heart. WE NEED TO BAN PALM OIL PRODUCTION. Is there no part of this priceless, irreplaceable planet we are not willing to destroy for money?

nonhuman animals have the same rights that we claim for ourselves because we consider ourselves moral. Therefore, these orangs have the right to their habitat and so we need to reduce the human load by getting people to stop having kids. We\'re overpopulated, let\'s reduce it for everyone\'s benefit.
