Sepilok Orang Utan Sanctuary

Local nameSepilok Orang Utan Sanctuary
LocationBorneo, Malaysia

Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre is located about 25 kilometres west of Sandakan in the state of Sabah, Malaysia.

The centre opened in 1964 as the first official orangutan rehabilitation project for rescued orphaned baby orangutans from logging sites, plantations, illegal hunting or kept as pets. The orphaned orangutans are trained to survive again in the wild and are released as soon as they are ready. The sanctuary is located within the Kabili-Sepilok Forest Reserve which covers an area of 4,294 ha, much of which is virgin rainforest. Today around 60 to 80 orangutans are living free in the reserve.

It has become one of Sabah's tourist attractions.In October 2014 the centre opened a new section where visitors can view the nursery area where the younger Orangutans first learn to be outside and play on a large climbing frame.
