Older Gelison

Orphan Gelison has been released!

Orphaned orangutan, Gelison, who was rescued in 2010 aged just eight months old, has been going through the final rehabilitation stages at Sepilok and now he has been released to live independently.

The Orangutan Appeal UK is a registered charity based in the south of England, dedicated to the rehabilitation and preservation of orangutans and the conservation of their habitat.

The Appeal strives to protect remaining wild populations of orangutans by providing support and funding for projects across Malaysian and Indonesian Borneo; and by raising awareness of the plight of this great ape across the globe. The Appeal is also authorised to work on behalf of the famous Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre!
