Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre, Borneo

Updated on January 16, 2015

Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre

The Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre in Borneo is a sanctuary for orphan orang utans; It helps to train previously captive or orphaned orangutans ready for a life in the wild.


Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre is located in the Sabah district of Malaysian Borneo. It was founded in 1964 in the Kabili Sepilok Forest Reserve and occupies an area of 43 square kilometres. The number of animals is constantly changing with new arrivals and rehabilitated orang utans continually returning to the jungle.


It is fantastic to see these wonderful intelligent creatures up close and to see the amazing work being done, by the dedicated staff.

      It had to be wonderful to visit Sepilok to see all that goes on there. I bet everyone has more fun than a barrel of monkeys. Fun and fascinating lens Sandy, and nice photos.

      @julieannbrady: Hi Julie. Thanks. I can't find anything challenging here. All of the links etc. seem to be O.K. although this lens does get quite a lot of information from other sites like Zazzle, the weather site, Twitter etc. so what might have happened is one of those external sites could have been overloaded? It seems to be loading O.K. now anyway. Thanks for pointing it out though. I'll check again later.

      Andy, I was just thinking about an orangutan and ventured to have a look. Love that Rafflesia, the biggest Flower in the world! Side note: I venture to your page and then my computer started making a loud whirring noise ... don't know if you have something "challenging" on this page.

      This lens is awesome. I love it. I am going to tell my editors on my Thai News website to write something about this lens and probably feature it.

      I will comment here again once we do.

      Great Work

      Hi! Just want to say that the map pointing Indonesia, not Malaysia.... and Indonesia has much more OrangUtan than in Malaysia.... Utan is a slang word from Indonesia for Hutan or forrest
