Rahayu is now living on Besar Island and continues to flourish in her forest environment. She is a hard-working orangutan, always learning new things.
She often watches her friends foraging and using tools and learns by imitating them. By watching the older orangutans on Besar Island, Rahayu is learning further forest skills including how to build a stable nest in the canopy.
When out in the forest, Rahayu often watches the world from the tree tops, observing her friends playing together. Sometimes she’ll join in if she’s interested, or play alone since she is still mostly very independent.
