- Linus is one of our largest orangutans at the sanctuary. His head and facial flanges (cheekpads) are nearly twice the size of our other adult male orangutans.
- Linus is fascinated by textures, particularly fabrics, and he also gathers paper products such as cardboard boxes, paper bags, and wrapping paper for his daily collection. Every time he moves indoors or outside, he carefully gathers up all his blankets, boxes, and bags and carries them with him wherever he goes.
ADOPT AN APE
It costs $22,000 a year to care for one of our apes. By symbolically adopting the ape of your choice for a one-time donation of $300 OR just $25 a month for one year, you are helping ensure the health, safety, and well-being of your orangutan or chimpanzee.
In addition to cash donations, the Center for Great Apes is always in need of food, enrichment items, and supplies. We welcome gifts of all kinds.
