The Great Orangutan Project in Borneo is most famous for aiding in the conservation of the animals from which it got its name, the mighty Orangutan. However, these aren’t the only animals who are helped by the staff and volunteers at the project site and today we are delighted to bring you an update about a much smaller creature!

Slow Loris

A Slow Loris came into the care of the team at Matang and fortunately they were quickly able to release her back into the wild. She had a health check, a radio collar attached, and she was then released into the rehabilitation area at the centre so that she can be monitored for a few weeks. If her behaviour is similar enough to that of a wild Loris then she will be able to be released fully!

You can take a look at the Great Orangutan Project here, but we hope that this cute and happy story has cheered you all up on a wet and windy Monday!
