Wigly is doing well in the socialisation enclosure at Nyaru Menteng and still lives with five other orangutans named Rajawali, Himba, Molek, Lorry and Ello. Wigly is quite close to Himba who is the dominant orangutan in the enclosure.

Wigly is one of the most active orangutans in the group. He loves to to climb and engage with the enrichment provided in his enclosure including toys and food puzzles. Wigly and Ello can be quite competitive over the enrichment.

Enrichment keeps the orangutans active and encourages problem solving with food treats often hidden in various food puzzles. Wigly especially likes to play with the new artificial grass when it is covered in oatmeal.

Wigly remains in excellent health and has a good appetite, eating all of the food offered to him. Wigly is one of the candidates to be relocated to a pre-release island when there is room and here he will be able to further develop his skills for future release.
