Clinic Equipment

The clinic at Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre provides 24-hour care to injured and sick orangutans and other wildlife. It is an important facility which increases survival rates for members of this critically endangered species. Sepilok Rehabilitation Centre is owned and run by Sabah Wildlife Department but Orangutan Appeal UK have helped to provide the clinic with vital equipment over the years. This has helped to improve diagnoses and treatment.
