About this Orangutan
Mason came into OFI’s care after losing his mother. Recovering from this trauma has been a struggle for him. For a long time, Mason was totally dependent upon his caregivers. Although he still likes to sit in their presence during trips to the forest, his development has been slowly progressing. He has formed a friendship with his roommate Turbo, who has had similar difficulties maintaining his health and interacting with others. The two often wrestle together and are becoming more comfortable playing with others. In fact, Mason is becoming more assertive in play, and always seems to find a way to come out on top.
