Sepilok 国家野生动物园

The Sepilok Orang Utan Rehabilitation Centre was set up in 1964 to rehabilitate orphaned baby orang utan.Set in the lush 4,300-hectare Kabili-Sepilok forest Reserve,the Centre under the administration of the Wildlife Department of Sabah attracts tourists and researchers alike,giving them the opportunity to watch the orang utan up close in their natural habitat.A boardwalk leads you to a viewing gallery and feeding platform where the apes are fed milk and bananas twice a day at 10.00am and 3.00pm by rangers.Feeding time also attracts long-tailed macaques to the area.While orang utan rehabilitation is still the primary goal at Sepilok,it also focuses on public education on conservation,research and assistance on other endangered species such as the rhinoceros.
