Very sadly, Otok passed away earlier this year. With his gentle and calm disposition, Otok was considered an old soul.
He was always mild mannered and affectionate around his care givers. Otok’s carers would joke about how he liked to relax on the forest floor, munching on leaves without any sense of urgency, as if he had all the time in the world just to enjoy the moment. Even when he wasn’t eating, Otok would sometimes sit in one spot for a long time seemingly absorbing his surroundings as though he was meditating.
Otok had always been a thin orangutan with underlying health issues and sadly he passed away due to complications with his health. Understandably, our team, project managers and adopters will grieve the loss of Otok, a greatly loved orangutan.
