Providing vital food and care to an orphan orangutan

This is Frengky, a young orangutan that was recently rescued in West Kalimantan. Like all the other babies, his mother was killed by loggers or palm oil company employees.
Frengky is currently being looked after at a local government authority compound, pending his transfer to a rescue centre.
Here we see Frengky being fed and checked over by Yenny, the Centre for Orangutan Conservation (COP) vet.
