Endangered Orangutans
Mother and Babies

The natural maternal instinct of Simona shines in this photo, even though she herself is an orphan and never really knew her mother’s love. Simona was re-introduced into a semi-wild island by BOSF Nyaru Menteng many years ago and has successfully given birth to her own baby (on the right).
At the same time, it seems she adopted a baby in the wild and called it her own. Simona’s innate maternal instinct shines through this image as she not only protects her own baby but also the baby of another fellow orangutan to ensure the survival of the species, even though she is an orphan who had lost her mother when she was just a baby herself.
