Orang-utans and Fig Trees

Apr 20, 12 Orang-utans and Fig Trees

While conducting patrols along the rivers, roads and through the forest. the Honorary Wildlife Wardens are able to observe a variety of wildlife.  On this occasion, as they were conducting their patrol by boat, they spotted an orang-utan mother and young feeding on a fig tree by the banks of the river.

Orang-utans eat a variety of plants and fig trees are one of their favourite.  As always the team monitors the orang-utan briefly to make sure that everything is okay and that their is nothing out of the ordinary.

And by the looks of it this mother and child where fine as they continued to eat and ignore our Warden’s!
