Update on baby Budi's recovery: nine
Budi learns to climb!
In the wild orangutans spend 90% of their time in the trees. So if Budi was with his mother in the forest, he would be constantly clinging to her side as she moved through the trees. Instead, just a couple of months ago, Budi was found lying alone in a chicken cage, unable to move at all.
We are delighted that after having daily physiotherapy sessions with our medical team, Budi can move about more, and without pain. The team are now focussing on teaching Budi to climb. This will help strengthen the muscles in his legs as well as his arms.
Watch as the vet gently encourages Budi to climb onto the frame and pull himself up!
Go Budi, go!
