Adorable Baby Orangutan Rescued

This footage shows the moment a tiny baby orangutan is rescued after being found all alone in a palm oil plantation in West Borneo.

A plantation worker called Rahman found the adorable ape crying in the bushes and reported the discovery to his manager.

Thinking the baby’s mother would return to retrieve him, they left him where he was but when they went back the next day they were upset to discover he was still in the same place, all alone.

A team from International Animal Rescue (IAR) and members of the Natural Resources Conservation Centre (BKSDA) in West Borneo travelled to the oil palm plantation in Tanjung Pasar Village in Ketapang District where Rahman and his co-workers were waiting to hand the baby over.

The team then named the little ape Rahman, after the man who found him.
