The Orangutan Nursery is one of the three Orangutan Groups at Monkey World. It is home to young orangutans that have either been born at the park and have been rejected or were born in the wild or zoo and have been rejected, orphaned or smuggled. They remain in this group until they are old enough to join Tuan's Group or Gordon's Group or be placed in zoos as part of breeding programmes.

She became foster mother at the nursery.

Former MembersEdit

  • Hsiao-Quai - Hsiao-Quai was estimated to have been born in 1994. She was wild born, but was taken from the wild for the illegal pet trade. She was later confiscated and taken to Pingtung Rescue Centre in Taiwan and shared an enclosure with Lucky and Hsiao-Lan. She arrived at Monkey World in 2001 alongside Lucky and later Hsiao-Lan. She had two sons; Kai (born 2005) (whom she had with Tuan) and Jin (whom she had with Gordon). She also became adoptive mother to Awan after Hsiao-Lan rejected her. Following this, Hsiao-Quai moved into the nursery with Jin and Awan. In 2017, she and Awan moved on Tuan's Group. She sadly died later that year.
  • Kai - Kai was born at Monkey World in 2005. He is the son of Hsiao-Quai and Tuan and Hsiao-Ning, Dinda, Jin and Awan's half-brother. He used to live with Gordon, but was moved into the nursery after the latter matured and began to see Kai as a threat. In 2016, as part of a breeding programme, Kai was moved to Rio Safari Elche in Spain along with Joly and Lingga.
  • Joly - Joly was captive born and later moved to Monkey World and lived in the nursery with Kai and Lingga. Upon reaching adolescence, Joly and Lingga were moved into Tuan's group.

  • Lingga - Lingga was captive born and later moved to Monkey World and lived in the nursery with Kai and Joly. Upon reaching adolescence, Lingga and Joly were moved into Tuan's group. In 2016, as part of a breeding programme, Lingga was moved to Rio Safari Elche in Spain with Kai and Joly.
  • Hsiao-Ning - Hsiao-Ning was born at Monkey World in 2003. She is Tuan and RoRo's daughter, Dinda's older sister and Kai and Awan's half-sister. She had to be hand reared after RoRo rejected her. She eventually moved into the nursery. Upon failing to fit in with any of the park's orangutan groups, an adolescent Hsiao-Ning was moved to Rostock Zoo in Germany for a breeding programme. She was later joined by her sister Dinda. In 2017, Hsiao-Ning gave birth to a daughter and has been able to care for her.
