Birthday greetings

Altogether now…


Happy Birthday to you,

Happy Birthday to you,

Happy Birthday dear Jorong,

Happy Birthday to you!


Our handsome alpha male Bornean orangutan is 22 today!

Primate keepers have been busy whipping up a tasty ape friendly cake for the birthday boy, which they’ll share in the orang house later on, with Benji, Jazz and daughter, Sprout!

And in other news, we’ve discovered our orangs were the most adopted animals on site over Christmas. Our marketing team sent out dozens of packs for our four orangutans to great ape fans, which helped us raise thousands of pounds towards our ongoing conservation work.
