Bukit Lawang is a small tourist village on the bank of Bahorok River in North Sumatra province of Indonesia.
Situated approximately 86 km northwest of the city of Medan, Bukit Lawang is known for the largest animal sanctuary of Sumatran orangutan 
(around 5,000 orangutans occupy the area) and also the main access point to the Gunung Leuser National Park from the east side.
The Bukit Lawang rehabilitation centre for orangutans was founded in 1973. Its main purpose is to preserve the decreasing number of orangutan population due to hunting, trading and deforestation.

The Sumatran orangutans (Pongo abelii) are rarer and smaller than the Bornean relatives, have lighter hair and a longer beard. Today there are approximately only around 6.600 left in the wild, most of them in the provinces of Aceh and North Sumatra. It's really a memorable experience to watch the orangutans in the tropical rainforest of Gunung Leuser National Park, but this animals should be really protected with care.

Orangutans spend most of their lives in the tops of the trees and climb from branch to branch. They can make several kilometers per day, looking for food and making a new nest each night in a tree for sleeping,
only coming together for minimal social interaction. Their diet generally consists of vegetarian items and insects. This great apes prefer leaves and fruits including figs and jack fruits, but they also often eat bird eggs, small vertebrates, termites or ants.

The Sumatran orangutans grow to about 1.4 meters tall and males weigh up to 80 kilograms.
Females are smaller, 90 centimeters on average and they weigh up to 40 kilograms. Their life span is long, often around 45 years in the wild. And they have the longest inter-birth interval of any land-living animal, producing a single infant only around once every 8 years. The infants stay then with their mother until they are 7-10 years old. So a female will usually have no more than 3 offspring in her life.
