Hongbao rests in her cell in Hangzhou Safari Park in Hangzhou, captal of east China's Zhejiang Province, May 27, 2011. Hongbao, a female orangutan from Hangzhou Safari Park, will soon travel to Nanjing Hongshan Forest Zoo in Nanjing, capital of east China's Jiangsu Province, to marry Leshen, a 12-year-old male. With typically reddish-brown hair, orangutans are highly endangered species found only in southeast Asia and parts of the Chinese mainland. The marriage between Hongbao and Leshen is expected to contribute to the breeding of orangutans and help enlarge their population. (Xinhua/Xu Yu)
