The Taiwan Ten




In 1991, the government of Taiwan, in a goodwill move, returned to Indonesia
ten young orangutans  that had been held captive in Taiwan for entertainment
purposes,  and  as pets.  They came to be known as THE TAIWAN TEN,  and,
for awhile, were taken care of by OFI.  But, eventually, for rehabilitation, they
were removed  to East Kalimantan, and elsewhere. However, before they left,
I spent about a month assisting in their care, and photographing them.



They were housed, temporarily, in cages, near the
Ragunan Zoo in Jakarta, in the garage of a house
outside of  which  a "jungle gym"  was erected to
exercise them.
