The moat

The orangutan islands are surrounded by a moat, which needs to be cleared of plants ever so often. This was just one of the jobs the volunteers were tasked with.

Meet the sunbears

The sanctuary is also home to a number of sun bears. Like the orangutans they need some “entertainment” in form of enrichment to keep them stimulated. It’s not always easy for them to get to the food hidden in the enrichment, but frustration is a better emotion than boredom.
