    Meet Ruthie


Ruthie arrived at Nyaru Menteng in Sept 2007 aged approximately two years old. She had been badly treated as a pet, which left her physically and mentally scarred and she would not only bite the other orangutans but would also self harm. Over time and with a great deal of special care, her temperament and physical condition improved and she has now completed the rehabilitation process and is loving life on Bangamat pre-release island, the last stop before freedom in the forest.
