Baby Orangutans Deal with Back-to-School Jitters


[MUSIC PLAYING] NARRATOR: At the new baby house,
where the youngest orphans now live, everyone seems
enthusiastic about the different morning routine. But once the doors open,
the bravado vanishes and many of the nursery babies
cling to each other for comfort as they’re still getting
used to their new home. This morning, Jelapat’s missing
his usual hug buddy, Telecan. So he’s brought his
security blanket along. Everyone rides the
wheelbarrow buses for another day in the forest. [MUSIC PLAYING] Two miles away at the main
Nyaru Menteng compound the older classes are already
filing into the forest for the day’s lessons. Hanin holds up her
classmates for a bathroom break, orangutan style. Cinta deals with the roadblock
with her signature move. The Group Two students
pile onto their platform as baby sitter Letta constructs
one of the famous fruit kebabs the team uses to
encourage the students to forage in the trees. Class clown Valentino
has a love hate relationship with this lesson. Over the past few months,
trying to grab moving fruit has frustrated him enormously. He makes a token effort
today, but Valentino has no patience for this. And so he goes
straight to the source.

  1. I truly enjoy watching this series!!! AHHHH SUPER DUPER CUTE I WANNA CRYYYY T____T

  2. I knew for a long time during my long standing career as a social worker that I had missed my calling in life..even though I genuinely appreciated helping people..adding an extra expertize e.g. "Ape" Nurse/Teacher๐Ÿ’• to my resume would have certainly filled the void in my life..actually, am wondering if wedding for a second time to the best candidate ..would have satisfied me ?? Perhaps so! ๐Ÿ™„ ๐Ÿค— ! ..moi, Canada ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ฆ

  3. I adore and love these sweet babies. I am so grateful for baby sitters to ones who make this possible.

  4. I got the Smithsonian Channelโ€™s 1 week trial just to watch the full episodes๐Ÿ˜‚โค๏ธ

  5. Valentino should jump on the caretaker's shoulders & head, and grab the branch from her hand after that teasing session.

  6. Now that Indonesia have ruined the city of Jakarta they will ruin Borneo by building a new capitol city there. What hope do these amazing creatures really have now.

  7. Valentino is darling โค๏ธ after human killed his mom ๐Ÿ˜ฅwe should resposible for his life ๐Ÿ˜ญ

  8. I live in Indonesia and i can't believe i haven't met any orang utan. Where do i go to see them? (The ones in this video) anyone knows? I'd travel for them. They're adorable!

  9. Breaking news! orangutans learning the ways of humans, soon they will over throw their overlords.

  10. I wonder how many times they spilled orangutan babies out of that wheelbarrow ๐Ÿ˜ญ

  11. They're adorable, but how terribly sad and tragic that they are orphans and cannot be raised by their mothers. Because of humans taking their habitat, shooting and trapping them as pests, and taking them to be "pets," these animals have to be raised by humans and taught how to be orangutans by another species. It's angering and it's happening all over the world.

  12. I want my children to look like this so if there is a very hairy woman out there hit me up

  13. God how I love these babies. Terrible that they lost their mommas and their habitats

  14. Valentino is the trouble maker of the bunch ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

  15. Orangutans,Are the cutest things on earth! I would just to hold or hug one for 5 min lol lol

  16. too much! this is toooo much.. my heart is bursting with this uncontainable cuteness..

  17. These 'tangs telling me of the miyate musician "Lil" Tripping Red! They look just like him haha!

  18. Omg, the one crawling with a towel at 0:30, this is just too much cute i can't take it

  19. A security blanket. So human like. We have so much in common with animals. More than we realize.
    Thanks for the care you provide for them.

  20. Watching those babies hug so tight is so sad. They have to stop destroying the rainforest. We need it to. God made each animal for a reason on earth. Just so sad.

  21. ๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿ‘ŽI wish this kind of money was spent on our homeless or displaced children .
