Hunt for new mother for rescued orangutans

They have spent their short lives being looked after by humans, but now these Sumatran orangutans are looking for new families.

Seven-week-old female Rieke was transferred from Berlin after being rejected at birth.

Five-month-old male Bulu Mata came from Budapest after his mother died giving birth.

Bryony MacKenzie visited them at Monkey World Ape Rescue Centre in Dorset.
