Overview of your George town tour:

In Compliance With ToursByLocals' Animal Protection Policy - Rescue - Rehabilitate - Educate & Awareness - Research * Neither a "zoo" nor an amusement park The Orang Utans are the three (Borneon, Sumatran & Tapanuli) exclusively Asian species of extant great apes. Native to Indonesia and Malaysia, Orang Utans are found only in the rain forests of Borneo and Sumatra. The Bornean Orang Utans population declined by 50% in the past 60 years. Their habitat has decreased rapidly due to logging and forest fires, fragmentation by roads as well as the conversion of vast areas of tropical forest to palm oil plantations in response to international demand. The trip involves crossing the NEW Penang Bridge (24km) to Bukit Merah OU Foundation and the OLD Penang Bridge (13. 5km) on the way back to Penang Island. Recommended for passengers of: - Oceania Cruises, Silversea, Royal Caribbean, Princess Cruises, Celebrity etc. > 7-hour (FULL-DAY) tour guide service + Licensed tour van for up to 12 visitors.
