Decline in orphaned orang utan shows Sabah move is effective


Happy together: An orangutan mother with her three-month old baby at the Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre

KOTA KINABALU: Sabah’s move to protect key orang utan habitats in the state’s east coast is paying off with a sharp decline in orphaned animals being sent to a rehabilitation centre in Sepilok.

Sabah Wildlife Department assistant director Dr Sen Nathan said only two orang utan were brought to the centre, about 30km from Sandakan, last year.
