Sepilok Orangutan Sanctuary in Sabah

Today we went to the oldest and largest orangutan rehabilitation centre in the world(1). , The Seilok Orangutan Sanctary. To get there it took 20 minutes to drive from Sandakan in our rental car. We arrived there around 2:30 in the afternoon which is supposedly one of the best times to visit(1) since this is when the orangutans come out from the forest to feed on bananas and milk. They did indeed, we were suprised and fascinated by the numbers of Orangutans there especially Vanessa. Other than the primates, there were so many different species of birds and exotic plants. The great thing about this place is that they train orphaned orangutans to survive in the jungle again. The only bad thing that happened here was that one of the orangutans stole my camera, so I had to get one of the rangers to get it for me.
