Postcard of the Week: Sabah, Malaysia

orangutan, Borneo, Christine Salins, Food Wine Travel, Malaysia, where to see orangutans,

We met this cute little fellow at an orang-utan sanctuary at the Shangri-la Rasa Ria resort near Kota Kinabalu. Here you can learn all about the plight of the orang-utan whose habitat is severely under threat from deforestation on the island of Borneo. The sanctuary was caring for a number of adult orang-utans whose antics we watched from a distance before the rangers allowed us to get up close to this baby.
