Swimming with dolphins tick, witnessing the Serengeti's great migration tick, both ultimate travel bucket list things to do and I can now add another one, swinging with the apes. Not literally, but trekking deep into the Sumatran jungle to see orang-utangs in the wild and as King Louie sang in The Jungle Book, they really are king of the swingers. I have to be honest, I'm not much of an animal lover, people are much more my thing and I'd swap getting up early to go on safari to getting up early to visit a local market any day. However, the first time you spot our ginger friends and considering their size, they're not difficult to spot swinging or more like crashing through the trees you can't help but raise a smile. I was in Bukit Lawang in North Sumatra, one of the few places you can see orang-utangs in their natural habitat. Tourists flock to Bali and Java for beaches and temples but North Sumatra remains relatively undiscovered. However, there's a set route of major highlights that cant easily be done in a week.
Potential answers for "Sumatra swinger"
News Published: Sep 6, The tiny newcomer was spotted in its mum's arms by keeping staff at the zoo whilst they were doing their daily morning checks. Keepers at the zoo say mum Subis, 28, gave birth in the early hours of Thursday morning following an eight-and-a-half-month gestation. Staff say the new arrival — the fifth for Subis — has certainly provided cause for celebration at the zoo. Sumatran orangutans are listed as critically endangered by the International Union for the Conservation of Nature IUCN and face an extremely high risk of extinction in the wild, meaning every new addition to the European Endangered Species Breeding Programme is vitally important. Tim Rowlands, curator of mammals at the zoo, said: "It was a fabulous to come in and see a tiny pair of arms clinging to Subis. Sumatran orangutans are found only on the island of Sumatra in Indonesia where it's estimated that fewer than 6, remain. The species has come under threat due largely to the destruction of its habitat for logging, wholesale conversion of forest to palm oil plantations and hunting. Mr Rowlands added: "To watch Subis cradling her new arrival is a truly wonderful sight and we just hope that the pair help us to raise a little more awareness of their cousins in the wild that face enormous threats on a day-to-day basis.
