The youngest Semenggoh Orang Utan baby is now being “adopted” by the High Commissioner of Bangladesh to Malaysia, His Excellency Md. Shahidul Islam.
Baby Mas’ formal adoption was made during Md. Shahidul’s visit to Semenggoh Wildlife Centre on September 23.
The adopters’ programme coordinated by the Sarawak Forestry Corporation aims to raise funds for Semenggoh’s conservation programme and help raise awareness on the importance of wildlife conservation in Sarawak.
The centre now houses 28 Orang Utans, aged between 1 and 46.
