It’s International Orangutan Day! Here at Brookfield Zoo, the Chicago Zoological Society’s animal care staff have provided a behind-the-scenes environment for Kecil and Maggie that has allowed them to build and strengthen their bond. The relationship between the two continues to get stronger every day. Maggie has taken on the role of Kecil’s surrogate mom as she sometimes carries him, comforts, and plays with him. Read our Keeper’s Journal on baby orangutan Kecil at www.CZS.org/Kecil, and help with the orangutan program and other animal care at Brookfield Zoo through the Conservation Fund, which helps fund the Center for the Science of Animal Welfare.
