Rare albino orangutan ‘Alba’ returns to the wild


The world’s only recorded albino orangutan has been released into the wild in Borneo after many months of rehabilitation.

Alba lacks the pigment melanin in her hair and skin.

She was named after the Latin word for “white” following a naming competition by the Borneo Orangutan Survival Foundation.
