It's World Orangutan Day. To mark the occasion, Sumatran orphans Bulu Mata and Rieke have moved into a purpose-built playroom crèche at Monkey World in Dorset. Baby girl, Rieke, arrived from Berlin Zoo in February having been rejected at birth by her mother. She joined her new adopted brother, Bulu Mata,who came from Budapest Zoo in December after his mother died unexpectedly. Both are being looked after by specialist Primate Care Staff at Dorset’s world-renowned primate sanctuary, in preparation for joining the family of orangutans at the park.
