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

The IAR centre [cares / caring] for animals that have been [rescues / rescued] from the wild. Some of the baby orangutans lost their parents because of [illegally / illegal] poaching, habitat loss and [forested / forest] fires. The IAR said they "are suffering and dying because of the systematic destruction of the rainforest, [primary / primarily] for palm oil production". Other baby orangutans have been stolen from their mothers to be [selling / sold] as pets. There are [also / as] adult orangutans at the centre. These have spent most of their lives [in / on] captivity. The World Wildlife Fund estimates there are around 45,000 to 69,000 orangutans in Borneo, but their [number / numbers] are decreasing because [their / them] forests are being destroyed by illegal logging and palm oil companies.
