Baby orangutans in Indonesia are to school to skills like finding food and making a nest. The school the skills the young apes learn will mean they can reintroduced into the wild and on their own. The school was set up by International Animal Rescue (IAR). There are currently 102 orangutans living at the centre. A spokesperson said: "We committed to rescuing and rehabilitating as many orangutans as we can and them a second chance to live safely in their natural environment." Not all of them attend the school because some have long-term injuries so they can never back to the forest. It could up to eight years to get others ready to return to the wild.

The IAR centre for animals that have been from the wild. Some of the baby orangutans their parents because of illegal poaching, habitat loss and forest fires. The IAR said they "are and dying because of the systematic destruction of the rainforest, primarily for palm oil production". Other baby orangutans have been from their mothers to be as pets. There are also adult orangutans at the centre. These have most of their lives in captivity. The World Wildlife Fund there are around 45,000 to 69,000 orangutans in Borneo, but their numbers are because their forests are destroyed by illegal logging and palm oil companies.
