font size    

Hongshan Forest Zoo in Nanjing, capital of east China's Jiangsu Province, is planning to matchmake worldwide for Leshen, the only one orangutan in the zoo. Manager with the Primate Management Section under the zoo noted that they have launched a Chinese-English bilingual blog,, for it.

The Orangutan, originating in Indonesia, is one of the world's most endangered species, with only 6,000 survivals globally and some 200 at home. Leshen, in that sense, is regarded as the treasure of Hongshan Forest Zoo. Born in 1999, Leshan is the first and the only orangutan nurtured in China and the six-year-old has reached its adulthood now. "We have had contacts with zoos in Shanghai, Hangzhou and Qinhuangdao, but failed to find an appropriate mate for him. Therefore we have to send out invitation of marriage worldwide."

It is said that all the relevant information about Leshan and his image can be found at the blog. Meanwhile, Hongshan Forest Zoo is contacting two zoos in Japan.
