Life Without a Care



I spent about an hour watching this adorable orangutan climb all over his foster mother. He was orphaned like many others due to his home being destroyed by deforestation at the hands of the palm oil industry. Playfully swinging around the canopy close to mom, this baby seemed oblivious to any hazards life presents. His human-like expressions and antics reminded me of watching a child at the store misbehaving while mom defeated looks on.
