Orangutan Dora is eight years old. She spent the first years of her life in captivity as an orphan. Then she was freed and brought to an "ape school" on the Indonesian island of Sumatra. There, she learned how to climb, build a nest and find food. When she was mature enough to live independently in the rainforest, she was reintroduced into the wild.
