A feeding platform was built in the jungle to aid their survival in the wild. Many of these semi-wild Orangutans and their off spring still frequent the feeding platform. There is also the occasional wild visitor.
The Orangutans are fed twice a day on bananas and milk. It was believed that a bland diet would encourage the rehabilitated Orangutans to search for a more varied diet themselves in the jungle.
It is possible for visitors to Bukit Lawang to visit the feeding platform and view the Orangutans.
