Hi, my name is Mamu


Mamu is possibly our Matang Wildlife Centre’s brightest rising star and the result of our successful captive breeding program.

Hi, my name is Aman


The story of Aman is intriguing from the start. He was initially named 89’er by his then owner and was rescued by the authority later. Since that episode, he was transferred to Semenggoh Wildlife Centre and become the Centre’s star icon.

Hi, my name is Doris


The loveable Doris is extremely friendly and adores her caregivers. Every now and then, she will try to share her food with them. She is very interested in visitors and will usually just walk up-right to greet them with a smile. However, these are not natural behaviours of orang-utans. They are known to be skilled imitators and Doris has learnt her trade from observing humans that she came into contact with at the Centre.

Hi, my name is Ting San

Ting San

Rescued by the wildlife authorities at a very tender age, Ting San arrived at our Centre in dire need of tender loving care, complete with 24 hours of minding for more than one year.

Upon the age when she was ready to socialise with other ‘students’ at our rehabilitation school, she joined the Centre’s brood and enrolled in its integration program. Here, she learned to interact with other orangutans and built on their confidence to be less dependent on human – this is important, as when released later to the wild, they have to rely on their own resourcefulness to survive.
