Visit an important conservation project at Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre. Opened in 1964, the center aims to rehabilitate orphaned baby orangutans rescued from logging sites, plantations, hunters, and homes, before releasing them into the wild. Set in a protected rainforest, the project lets you witness how they train the young orangutans to survive in their natural habitat, swinging on climbing frames, being fed, and monkeying around. Walk the wooden pathways and bridges through the surrounding nature reserve to see mature orangutans back in their natural environment after rehabilitation and release.
