Which orangutan are you? Take the quiz!

Posted by: Rebecca Whitham, Editor

Would you describe yourself as sweet or commanding? Do you prefer Jell-O to peanuts?

Take the “Which Orangutan Am I?” quiz to see which one of Woodland Park Zoo’s five orangutans you are most like—Towan, Heran, Melati, Chinta or Belawan.

Then post your results here and share with your friends! (Me? I’m such a Chinta.)

Come meet your orangutan at Asian Wildlife Conservation Day on Sat., August 9, 2014 to learn all about these amazing apes and what you can do to protect them in the wild. At the special event, free with zoo admission or membership, you’ll enjoy keeper talks and activities for the family at the orangutan exhibit, where you can take a pledge to protect this endangered species. You’ll even have the chance to enter a raffle to win a painting made by one of our very own orangutans!

The activities continue across the zoo spotlighting conservation for a great diversity of Asian wildlife—from elephants to red pandas, and snow leopards to cranes.

Conservation stretches beyond the zoo and into the field, where Woodland Park Zoo works with partners and communities across Asia to protect and preserve wildlife—like our work with the Gunung Palung Orangutan Conservation Program to save orangutans and their diminishing forests. Every time you visit Woodland Park Zoo, you help make this work possible!
