Orangutan Training Experience

Meet the orangutans and learn more about them firsthand from the keepers that care for these intelligent and charismatic animals. You’ll have the opportunity to observe an exclusive morning training session before the Great Apes building opens that few get to experience and learn more about what you can do to help save orangutans in the wild! Please note for the safety of our animals, guests will not have direct contact with the orangutans but rather get a closer 1 on 1 look with exclusive interactions. Proceeds from your Orangutan Training support the Kinabatabgan Orangutan Conservation Program.
