Harry: Featured Orangutan Artist of the Day! #ApesthatPaint

Harry was born on March 18, 2000

 

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 our other CGA residents, Harry is related to several of our 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 our aerial trailway chutes.

Harry’s background was in the entertainment business in California for a few years, but most recently he lived in Central Florida.  We’re 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.  Due to the success of the opening night, and many requests, we are extending the time that we will be exhibiting the artwork for one more month.  Visit our gallery located at 6822 SW 40th Street, Miami, FL 33155.  We have also made the artwork available online.  Call us for more information:  305-666-3355.  Visit our online store.
