19 June is International Orang-utan Day! Sadly the lowland forest habitats of Asia’s only great ape are rapidly disappearing to make way for palm oil plantations and other agricultural developments. Taronga is providing funds and support for projects working to protect vital Orang-utan habitat in Borneo and Sumatra. You can help stop the loss of Orang-utans’ forest homes by choosing sustainable palm oil products at your local supermarket. Photo by Mandy Everett

Fabumi is a little young for solid foods, but that didn’t stop him having a curious lick of mum’s lunch today. An adult male Gorilla will eat up to 18kgs of vegetation each day!

Why walk when you can ride? Baby gorillas like Fabumi learn to ride on their mother’s back at three to four months of age.

Frala’s little guy now has a name! The newest addition to our growing gorilla family has been named “Fubumi”, an African name meaning “gift of God”. The two-month-old continues to grow in strength and can often be spotted clinging on tightly to mum’s back. Photo by Gemma Ortlipp.
