Meet Zaki, Cleveland Metroparks Zoo’s Baby Orangutan

The Bornean orangutan born at Cleveland Metroparks Zoo in April now has a name: Zaki!

The name recently was selected through generous donations that raised nearly $15,000 for orangutan conservation efforts.

The baby is the first successful orangutan birth at the zoo since 2014 and the fifth since The RainForest opened in 1992. Similar to humans, orangutan offspring are completely dependent on their mother for the first few years of their life.

Guests visiting the zoo have a chance to see Zaki and his mom, Kera, at The RainForest.
