The Worlds Oldest Orangutan Lives In Portland

Straight from the wild, Inji (INN-GEE) the orangutan found her way to Portland in 1961. It was determined then, that Inji was about a year old when she arrived.

Right now the zoo is finishing the touches on the new Primate Forest area, so Inji is not available for viewing – but her keeper Colleen Reed tells KXL that the habitat they’ve created, helps in longevity and health.

Even though you can’t see Inji, If you do decide to go to the zoo tomorrow for World Wetlands Day, admission is free.
