Orangutan Jungle School is a popular show that lets viewers know more about the journey that some of these animals take. When orangutans are orphaned, they must be cared for by their rescuers before they can head back into the wild. Clara and Clarita were recently featured on the show. Clarita had been kidnapped by a dominant male orangutan and her mother was distressed.
Before Clarita was taken away from her, she and her daughter were enjoying a normal and peaceful existence. The pair was initially rescued by the good people at the Borneo Orangutan Survival foundation. They are also responsible for the operation of a special school that is located in Central Kalimantan Indonesia. Unfortunately, there was one major hurdle to clear.
The mother and her baby had already been apart for some time. No one knew if they would actually remember each other once they finally met up again. Clara might reject Clarita and this is something that the staff braced themselves for. If a baby smells different than a mother remembers, she will often reject the child and this was a major concern.
The staff was also worried that Clara would not want to give Clarita milk, even if she did take her back. At first, the staff was very cautious about the reintroduction. They placed the mother and daughter very slowly and did not leave them in the same cage together. After a few minutes, it became clear that all of the worries were rather unfounded.
Clara remembered her daughter well. It was clear to see that they loved each other very much. She was happy to see her baby again. If you will excuse us, we are going to take this moment to dry our eyes. Once she takes the child back into her arms, it will take everything in your power not to weep right along with us….you have our word on this.
