Close to death

This was the fourth orangutan to be rescued by the COP Rapid Response Team on last weeks trips. She is severely malnourished (probably fed mainly rice and no milk) and we think about 1.5years old. COP rushed her back to base where a vet has checked her over and administered treatment. As of 23rd July she is making steady progress on the road to recovery.
