They’re 97.4% like us, but deserve us to care 100% about them! So join us this Orangutan Caring Week (15-23 November) to learn how we can fight the extinction of the orangutan.There will be lots of fun orangutan-themed games and activities, face painting (15-16 and 22-23 November, 10am - 3pm), story-telling (10.30am daily) and encounters (12.30pm daily). Plus, on Thursday 20 November (4.30pm - 8pm), join us for The Great Ape Race, an amazing race around the Zoo to raise money for orangutan conservation.
See and learn from our spotted and striped friends.
