Semenggoh Nature Park: What’s unique about this park, is that it is set up as a refuge for animals. All the animals here come from the places where they had been poached and this sanctuary is a place where they have safety. If an orangutan doesn’t want to come down during feeding time, they won’t be pushed to be displayed.
