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 carries her two babies on her shoulders as she wades through the swamp. She adopted one of the babies from an inexperienced mother and cared for it as her own when she was already pregnant with her own baby (the one on the right).
