The orangutan mother Clara shows nothing but love and caring for her precious baby Clarita since the day she was born. She took care of her and feed her from the moment she came into this world. They both live at Nyaru Menteng Orangutan Rescue Center in Borneo, a sanctuary for abandoned orangutans. Unfortunately in one day Clara’s precious little baby was taken away.  According to reports, an alpha male took Clarita away from its mom.

As if this weren’t heart-breaking enough, it took nearly a week before Clara was reunited with her baby again. But the Borneo Orangutan Survival Foundation made it possible, in the end.
