These photos were taken three weeks ago at the A'Famosa Safari Park, Malaysia. The poor orangutans are forced to perform in circus/clown-like shows in front of jeering crowds who laugh at them. Note the thin, anorexic looking orangutan. We have reported to the authorities our concerns for this orangutan's health. During these daily shows not one word is said about the conservation of the orangutans. At this same park three years ago Nature Alert was successful in identifying several illegally held orangutans (wild caught in Indonesia) which were eventually repatriated to Indonesia.

If these photos upset you, please look back to this blog over the coming days and see what you can do to help them.
