Special Visitor


Wild male Malim has been seen at the feeding platforms recently. If you are visiting Sepilok you may be lucky enough to see this handsome chap!

Malim is a wild orangutan that lives in the Kabili reserve surrounding Sepilok. Back in September 2015, he was darted and brought into the clinic with a suspected broken leg. It was confirmed that he had broken his upper thigh and staff had to set it in a fibreglass cast. Malim stayed at Sepilok until December 2015, when he was fully recovered and released back into the reserve.

It is lovely to see this amazing orangutan fit and healthy and coming back to visit!
