Photo of the Week: An Orangutan Plays in the Grass
Photo of Week is a feature that highlights the work IFAW does around the world everyday to rescue orphaned, injured, or mistreated animals.
A rescued orangutan at a rehabilitation center in Nyarumenteng, Indonesia. More than 400 orangutans reside at the Nyarumenteng center. Raging wildfires across Indonesia in late 2006 choked the country in a thick haze of smoke and drove dozens of endangered orangutans from their jungle habitat.
IFAW's Jennifer Miller helped rescue these orangutans (like the one in the photo above) just a few months ago. She is back in Indonesia once again working alongside CARE following a series of natural disasters that have struck the country.
