Mamu was born at MWC and has lived there for 2 years now. Her mother, Ciam (pronounced Cham), is also at the center. Ciam was released but, due to an incident that I will explain shortly, she had to be returned to her enclosure. The head keepers believe that while she was released she became pregnant with Mamu.
Mamu is a fortunate orangutan to still be with her mother. The vast majority of infants and juveniles at rehabilitation centers do not have mothers and are considered orphans. Young orangutans have higher release success rates if they are raised by their real mothers or surrogate mothers. It is easier to have a more experienced orangutan teach the infants and juveniles rather than to have humans teaching them.
