Things To Know About Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre In Borneo


The name "Orangutan" was derived from the Malay word Orang Hutan, which means the "Man of the Forest". Orangutan is the only ape of Asia and found only in Sumatra and Borneo. Though orangutans won’t give you an eye-roll if you mistakenly call them monkey, people would laugh at you as apes have no tail!

Orangutan is the most human-like primate and its DNA is 97% similar to ours. And orangutans know what is love. Orangutans are a protected species of apes, even endangered. It is a victim of modernization and development. That's why Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation was created to save them.

Things to Know About Sepilok Rehabilitatiton Centre in Sabah, Borneo
Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre is based in the Malaysian Sabah District of North Borneo. It was created to protect and offer home for orphaned orangutans in 1964. The rehabilitation is 43 sq km of protected land at the edge of Kabili Sepilok Forest Reserve. At least 60-80 orangutans are living freely in the rehabilitation center.

When Sabah gained its independence as a state in Malaysia in 1963, a Game Branch was founded by the Forest Department for the conservation of animals in the area. Subsequently, 43 sq km of protected land at the edge of Kabili Sepilok Forest Reserve was turned into a rehabilitation site for orangutans.

Additionally, a center to take care of apes was built. Today, besides, the orangutans in the forest reserve, there are 25 young orphaned orangutans in the nurseries.




The sanctuary rescues and provides medical care to several of orphaned orangutans as well as other wildlife species. Other animals who have received medical care from the sanctuary include; Sumatran rhinos, gibbons, sun bears, and elephants. Recently, the animals in rehabilitation have their diet supplemented by bananas and milk. This is to intentionally bore the apes and encourage them to find food for themselves.

The Wildlife Department considers Sepilok an imperative tool in educating locals and visitors. However, the wardens are careful to see that there is no interference with the apes during the visits. The visitors are restricted to the walkways and are also not allowed to touch the apes.

One of the challenges that orphaned orangutans face is the fact that in the wild they stay with their mothers to learn basic skills until there are six years old. With no one to teach them, they may feel lost. To cover this, the sanctuary uses a buddy system to replace the mother’s place. A younger ape is paired with an older orangutan to continue learning.

The creation reserve reduces the effects of deforestation on orangutans and the young orangutans escape the "pet trade".

Babies are always caught during forest clearance or captured by mean hunters who slaughter the older orangutans to get the baby.

The Malaysian Government is working hard to protect the animals and have set heavy fines, and long jail sentences on anyone caught practicing the illegal trade. Youngsters kept in captivity suffer which may lead to them becoming cruel or feeling neglected. Some orangutans raised as pets may not be returned to the wild. However, Sepilok takes the responsibility to rehabilitate them in a long and expensive process which may take several years.


How to Get to Sepilok Orangutan SanctuarySepilok is one and a half hour away from Sandakan. You can use the public bus, taxi or organize a tour guide to Sepilok. However, if you have enough time and resources, it’s advisable to stay near the jungle resorts near the sanctuary. You get a bonus to see some apes from the pool.

Entrance FeeEntrance costs to the Sepilok Orangutan Sanctuary cost 30 MYR and 10 MYR for a camera. Note that besides the camera, you cannot go in the sanctuary with anything including water. However, there are free lockers to store your luggage so no worry.

Fortunately, the tickets last for a whole day so you can see two feedings in one day. The feeding happens at 10 am and 3 pm and takes 30 to 50 minutes. The sanctuary opens an hour before each feeding for visitors to walk through the jungles, visit the platform and secure a place on the viewing platform.

Although the feeding time attracts many orangutans, sometimes especially during the fruit season only a few show up since they got enough food in the forest. Also, stay alert because only two or four will feed at the same time. However, waiting and watching the trees begin to shake, the ropes vibrating and finally, the orangutans are one of the most wonderful things you will ever see in your life.
