Getting To Know Them Better

Bailey is a lovely female orangutan. Her background was in the entertainment business in California for a few years, but most recently she lived in Central Florida before arriving at the sanctuary in 2017, along with Jethro, Harry, Keagan, and Archie.

When Bailey arrived, she was paired with Jethro, but she has a strong female orangutan personality (much like her younger sisters Pebbles and Keagan) so we decided to introduce her to our newest cheekpadder Jam, and they make an adorable couple. They play together inside the nighthouse, laughing and tickling each other, but during the day she’s busy doing “projects” on her own.  Like most orangutans, Bailey loves buckets of suds and pools of water, and she is very determined to scrub all her bedroom walls with a brush!

Bailey also enjoys sitting on her culvert, wrapped up in a satin sheet, and watching the sunrise.
