closure of orangutan sanctury

I am planning to visit Borneo, but not until Feb or March 2008. I have been making enquiries about visiting the orangutan sanctury, but have been told that it is closing down. Does anyone know if this is true and if so when it is closing.

Hi BellaHarri

Which sanctuary are you referring too, the one in Sepilok? I haven't heard any rumours of a closure.

There was however, a few months back, a storm there and they were forced to temporarily close the main feeding platform - but they were still operational as guests were taken to the nursery instead.

As far as I know they did emergency repairs and I think they're back to 100% again. Is that perhaps what you've stumbled across?
