Michelle Yeoh and Orangutan in Sepilok Sabah

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre was established in 1964 to return orphaned apes back to the wild. I visited the place during my backpacking old days and would like to recommend it as a must not miss tourist attraction in Sabah.

Once ranging from China to Java, orangutans now survive only on the islands of Sumatra and Borneo. They could be extinct in less than 50 years if nothing is done to protect them and the forest they depend on. Due to poaching and illegal logging, orangutans have lost their natural habitat and forced into smaller areas, making it difficult for them to sustain long-term population and biodiversity.

Malaysian Bond girl, Michelle Yeoh will bring you to Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre to have a glimpse on the rehabilitation process for her adopted “baby”.
