Since 1973, the Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre is located in Bohorok / Bukit Lawang in the Gunung Leuser National Park on Sumatra. This is the best place worldwide to see Orangutans in their natural habitat of the jungle of Sumatra. Former imprisoned Orangutans are released back into their natural environment.
