Beda is still a dominant female orangutan living in the Information Enclosure.
In the past 6 months, she once managed to escape from her enclosure and immediately ran as far as possible from the center, into the forest, and joined Forest School - Group 1 where she climbed tall trees showing off to the younger orangutans in the group. Beda also caused a bit of chaos in staff residences and the guesthouse area. Fortunately, the technicians were finally to track her down. Enticed with fruit and milk, she was finally caught. We hope that a spot in one of the pre-release islands will soon become available for Beda because obviously she is ready to roam the forest once again.
