Budi is a baby orangutan that has been rescued by International Animal Rescue in Indonesia.
For the first year of his life Budi was kept in a chicken cage and fed on nothing but condensed milk which was slowly killing him.
On arrival at IAR’s orangutan rescue centre Budi’s condition was extremely critical, and he was too frail to move or sit up on his own. He was showing signs of severe malnutrition and screaming in pain every time he was moved by the vets. This video shows vet Karmele feeding Budi from a bottle and vet Jaclyn weighing him.
Our team of experts are working around the clock to monitor and treat Budi. He has a very long way to go on the road to recovery.
