KUCHING, July -- Changgau, a young Orang Utan is eating at Semenggoh Wildlife Centre Matang, located about 25 kilometres from here.

Changgau, three and a half years old will be released into the forest when it reaches 10 to 12 years old.

Semenggoh Wildlife Centre, opened since 1975 has 30 Orang Utan of various ages.

Orang Utan or its scientific name - Pongo pygmaeus - can only be found in tropical forest at Malaysia’s Borneo Islands (Sarawak and Sabah) and Indonesia’s Borneo Islands (Kalimantan and North Sumatera).

The lifespan of Orang Utan in wild habitat is up to 45 years and it can survive up to 60 years if kept in a conservation centre.

This wildlife centre is popular for the Orang Utan Rehabilitation Program and has succeeded in releasing the Orang Utan to their original habitat.
