A baby uses a laundry basket for a quick nap.
Just hanging around: A leisurely afternoon in a comfortable environment
Orphaned by hunters who hack their mothers to death, or victims of loggers destroying their forest, these wide-eyed, innocent orangutans have found a sanctuary to protect them.
And their unlikely new mummy? Former air-hostess Lone Droscher-Nielsen and her Borneo Orangutan Survival Foundation.
She has dedicated her life to saving orangutans whose habitat is being razed by bulldozers - without her, it is unlikely that any of these babies would be alive today. Now they attend jungle school so they can be returned to safe forests.
God bless that woman and her rescue group!
Thanks for posting PradasMeadow!
These photos are priceless! I wonder where they plan to release them to though because sadly there are no safe forests...
Can't see the pics but God bless her! The plight of those poor animals drives me crazy! I cried my eyes out at "Gorillas in the Mist" & "Instinct"
Pics appeared as i was leaving, I was too impatient :0 adorable, thanks for posting Prada
I know ..... I just hope they make it somehow.
Oh, I'm glad you can see them ! They're just so adorable arent they ?
God bless her indeed

Oh Boy ! Here I was just sitting here wondering how I could help. I'm also going to forward the link to a couple of friends of mine that are teachers here in the City. I would love to see Schools/children get involved in preserving these wonderful creatures.
