An ADORABLE baby orangutan and her doting mum clamber freely through the lush green jungle after being released back into the wild. Mum, Ah Foo, 25, and her 18-month-old baby, Kebaco, swing joyously from the trees after a three-month stint in quarantined captivity. The pair were rescued from an oil palm plantation after a concerned farmer raised the alarm amid preparations for the harvest – which would have destroyed their home and put them in serious danger. The team took the mum and baby to the Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre in Malaysia to screen them for disease before being released to set up their new home amongst fellow great apes. Gilbert Woolley, a photographer and editor from Bristol, UK, now living and working in Borneo, captured the young family’s adventure on film.
