Harry: Featured Orangutan Artist of the Day! #ApesthatPaint

Harry, with his beautiful long hair and round cheekpads, is a fully-flanged adult male orangutan.  Originally born in Miami at the same facility as some of the other Center for Great Apes residents, Harry is related to several orangutans.  In fact, he looks almost identical to his full brother BamBam.  BamBam is 14 months older than Harry, but Harry is much larger!

With his sweet and agreeable disposition, Harry is charming his new caregivers and has been particularly interested in watching the noisy chimpanzees nearby.  He’s eating very well and has started to explore the grounds in the aerial trailway chutes.

Harry’s background was the entertainment business in California for a few years, but most recently he lived in Central Florida.  The Center is very grateful that his owner decided to give Harry the opportunity for sanctuary care for the rest of his life.

Frames USA is hosting a Charity Art show featuring the artwork of the apes at the Center for Great Apes. Opening night is Friday, July 21, 2017, at 6 pm food and drinks provided by Carolina Ale House: RSVP
