At the Gulf Breeze Zoo, we have six orangutans with distinct personalities who live on their island habitat within the park. See “King Louie,” our only adult male; Artie, the comedian; Artie’s patient mom Maggie; philosophical Sarah; Sarah’s shy daughter Indah; and Brandee, the peacekeeper.
Our newest addition is IsaDora who was born on September 11, 2021, and is currently in the care of our animal care staff, and is not on exhibit.
