International Orangutan Day Brings Awareness to Endangered Species

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

Tuesday was International Orangutan Day.

At Brookfield Zoo, 8-month-old Keycil is being raised by Maggie -- his surrogate Mom. The two are bonding well since his arrival in June.

They will remain off exhibit, not visible to the public for several more months, in order to allow their relationship to solidify even further. The zoo is promoting awareness of the species, which is endangered by the palm oil industry.
