Bulu MataIn February this year we took the decision to show our support for the wonderful work that they do at Monkey World and adopt a baby Orang-utan.

Bulu Mata is a male Sumatran orang-utan (Pongo abelli) who was born at Budapest Zoo on 04/09/14. One week after his birth his mother sadly passed away leaving the tiny baby an orphan. Keepers at Budapest Zoo cared for Bulu Mata for the next few weeks while making arrangements for him to move to the orang-utan creche at Monkey World. He arrived at the park on 09/12/14. Primate Care Staff are caring for him while they try to get one of their adult female orang-utans to adopt him – until then he lives in a safe bedroom inside of the orang-utan nursery.
