I work in conservation in South Africa and sadly there are many 'rehabilitation' centres near me that don't do anything to benefit wildlife and in many cases, tell outright lies. I was therefore cautious about choosing where to go in Borneo but a visit to Sepilok was a good day and a chance to learn about the good work they do. Orang-utans are helped through the first crucial years of their life and then free to roam in the forest. Some are not seen again once released, others choose to return to the feeding station as much or as little as they like. It is not guaranteed that you will see any at all but that is what makes it a great centre, it is all at the animals choice. We spent time between the morning and afternoon feeds walking the forest trails and had lunch in the well equipped and cheap café at the centre.
