Welcome to Perth Zoo

Head on up to the Sumatran Orangutan habitat and find out what Jungle School is all about and why it’s so critical to the survival of the orangutans that we release into the wild. (This talk may include a feed or enrichment activity.)

Perth Zoo has a world-renowned orangutan breeding program and the ONLY zoo in the world to have released some back to protected pockets of the Sumatran jungle. But we don’t just drop them off with a sleeping bag and a packet of trail-mix! Hundreds of hours of training and preparation go into getting a zooborn orangutan ready for wild life. Once in Sumatra, they are tracked by wildlife biologists until we’re absolutely certain that they have what it takes to survive.
