In June 2016, 5 month old Mema was handed in to Nyaru Menteng in a cardboard box, she was close to dying of starvation and exhaustion. A local villager claimed to have come across her whilst searching for firewood in a burned peat area. Peat forest fires kill many orangutans, and this is possibly Mema's mother's fate but, she would have attempted to flee the fire and wouldn't have left her baby alone. Orangutan mother's will protect their babies to the death, curling up around them in an attempt to protect them, so we'll never really know what happened.

 Fun Fact

Being up in the trees can be terrifying to some babies, but not to Mema who is quickly becoming an expert.
