11 months old orang-utan Silvestre, was taken from a zoo in Spain to the UK specially on a luxury ferry. Silvestre was abandoned by his mother and the guys from The Monkey World Ape Rescue Centre in Dorset gave the baby ape a new home, where he can grow with other orang-utans.
A special permission was taken to bring Silvestre to the UK and he received a very special care during his luxurious journey.
“What a great Christmas present, being able to give little Silvestre a family of his own”. said Dr Alison Cronin, director of Monkey World (Independent.ie)
