Baby Orangutan Enjoys Bath After Long Day In Jungle School

By Tiffany Meier

A baby orangutan enjoyed a sudsy bath after a long day in jungle school at the Orangutan Foundation International’s (OFI) care center in Central Kalimantan, Indonesia.

The jungle school is part of the Borneo Orangutan Survival (BOS) Foundation’s unique school in a Borneo jungle in Central Kalimantan.

In it, the orphan orangutans are learning skills that will enable them to return to live again in a true wilderness one day.

As the alarming rate of deforestation keeps destroying the rainforest habitat, there are currently over 300 orangutans attending jungle school.

Kobe Steele, founder and president of OFI Australia, said, “To save orangutans we must save the forest.”

The OFI shared the video showing the orphan infant, Royal, enjoying her bath, on Nov. 22.

The Foundation wrote that it was Royal’s first time appearing in a video.

In it, Royal attempts to taste the bubbles on her skin, with her carer making sure she doesn’t get any in her eyes.
