Baby orangutan is saved - level 2
A baby orangutan became a victim of the illegal trade in Indonesia. He spent the first year of his life in a chicken cage. The people did not feed him properly, either. His bones could not develop correctly.
When vets from a British charity found him, he was sick, lonely and afraid. The animal was even too weak to sit up or move on his own. He had to be fed from a bottle. From then on, he received expert care. The little orangutan has the best chance to return to his home in the forest one day.
Difficult words: either (we use “either” in negative sentences instead of “also”), develop (to grow), vet (short for a veterinarian – a doctor who helps animals).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
