The Centre opened in 1964 as the first official orangutan rehabilitation project for rescued orphaned baby orangutans from logging sites, plantations, illegal hunting or kept as pets.
The orphaned orangutans are trained to survive again in the wild and are released as soon as they are ready. Today around 60 to 80 orangutans are living free in the reserve.
The 5 hour Kota Kinabalu to Sandakan bus can also drop you at junction Jalan Sepilok, around 2.5km from the Center.
