Baby orangutans in Indonesia are going to school. They are learning to find food so they can return to the forest and survive. This could take eight years. A school spokesperson said they want to rescue and help orangutans and give them a second chance. Some are too badly injured to go to the school.

Some of the baby orangutans lost their parents because of hunting, logging and forest fires. Palm oil companies are destroying their rainforests. Other baby orangutans became pets. There are also adult orangutans at the centre. The WWF says orangutans are in danger because their forests are disappearing.
