The story is called How To Babysit An Orangutan.There are people that take care of the orphan Orangutans so when the Orangutans grow up they can survive alone.They babysit them because when there alone in the jungle they have to do everything alone.Then when all the Orangutans grow up they skills and then the babysitters let them free in the jungle.All the babysitters hope they will survive alone.

Tristen Says:

Orangutans live in Camp Leakey located in the middle of the rain forest on the island of Borneo. Birute Galdikas and her friend are the ones taking care of the baby orangutans. It is not a “Forever” job. Orangutan’s use huge leaves to cover themselves from the rain that pours down on them they hate water. Orangutan games almost always include biting. Most orangutans like to eat the soap when they take baths. A wild orangutan would sleep in its mothers nest for five to six years. The babysitters at Camp Leakey have released over 100 orangutans back into the wild. These ex-captives have become wild again.

Orangutan’s live in Camp Leaky. It is in the middle of a rain forest on the island of Borneo. Birute Galdikas and her friend are helping the orangutan’s. It is not a forever job. Orangutan’s wear leaves for hat’s. Orangutan’s eat bananas. They do not like taking baths. When they meet new friends they look like a family. When orangutan’s are babies Birute Galgikas and her friend hope they will say goodbye to the orangutan’s.

Xander Says:

My story is How to Babysit an Orangutan. There is this place called Camp Leakey on the island of Borneo in the middle of the rain forest. There are these scientists who are taking care of orphaned orangutans because mothers are being killed or smuggled and babies can’t survive on their own. There is this person named Birute Galdika who works at Camp Leakey. They are rescuing stranded orangutans so they don’t become endangered. They babysit them then bring them back to their natural environment.

How to Babysit an Orangutan

Some people are researching orangutans and when they find them they bring them to this camp called Camp Leaky. And the people that find them they have to babysit them.But they also have to name them and there names are Tom and Nanang. But when there done babysiting them they have to bring them back to the wild. But one thing is if the orangutans can’t bulid their nests then they have to go back to the camp.

Some Orangutans need babysitting because alot of them end up getting smuggeld and they die from not eating and not drinking.Alot of Orangutans are orphaned and live on the island in the rainforest of Borneo at a camp called Camp Leaky.They teach them how to take care of themselves and so they can be more careful so they will not be smuggled.They teach them for about a year and then they can go off on their own.Orangutans love soap!Orangutans do not like taking baths.Then when they are older they can go out on their own!

How to babysit an orangutan

The people take care of them and do not hurt them.They are really good pets, but some people smuggle the adult orangutans and take the babys to take them somewere. Some people are good and take care of some other ones which is good because people take the orangutans out of there homes so they can wonder around to get fresh air because they are traped in a cage all day and night.The people try to teach the orangutans how to pick-up their food and other things they need to pick-up that is important to them and the people

Lydian Says:

Wow Tristen that is a very good summary I love it you typed all of the important facts down that you needed to!

Marissa Says:

I really liked Makayla’s because she had a bunch of cool facts.

Brian Says:

How to Babysit an Orangutan. First you have to find an orangutan that needs babysitting. That’s easy at camp Leakey. Located in the mid dle of a rain forest on the island of Borneo, Camp Leakey is not your average camp. It’s really an orangutan orphanage. Ordinarily,orangutan babies don’t need human babysitters,but the mothers of these little red apes have been killed and the orphans are too young to survive alone in the jungle. Without babysitters, all the babies would die from disease,starvation,or injuries.By Brian
