Adopting Selly & Sule

About Selly & Sule

Selly and Sule are a mother-offspring pair that frequently visits our research area. They are one of two mother-offspring pairs that have been observed at the site. Selly and Sule are both East Bornean orangutans. Selly is one of only two adult female orangutans that is found regularly in our Mentoko/Bendili study area. Sule, while still technically an “infant”, will soon be a juvenile. He will likely stay with his mother for approximately another 3 to 4 years.

OC's Adoption Program - Where are your contributions going?

The Orangutan Conservancy (OC) is emphasizing its commitment to wild orangutan conservation by offering for virtual adoption* of orangutans currently living in the Kutai National Park in East Kalimantan, Indonesia. By partnering with the Orangutan Kutai Project and the Kutai National Park authority, OC believes it can spur support and awareness of the wild orangutans in this fragile region.

The funds donated through our virtual adoption program will be directly applied to the Orangutan Conservancy and the Orangutan Kutai Project's fund. The project (led by OC's very own board member, Dr. Anne Russon) monitors a field site that runs about 4 km along the south side of the Sangata River, Kutai National Park’s northern boundary, an area that was chosen because censuses showed strong orangutan presence and the need for additional protection there.

*Virtual adoption does not imply ownership or rights to the individual orangutan.
