Orangutan Caring Week

At the Saint Louis Zoo we care about orangutans every day of the year, but love any excuse to celebrate them! Join us in celebrating Orangutan Caring Week — a week dedicated to inspiring others to care about orangutans and to take action to help them. Visit for special activities all about how we care for orangutans, and how you can show your care for them too.

In honor of #OrangutanCaringWeek, here's another edition of Zoo Animal Stories all about orangutans!
