More About This episode

It's a big day for the team when an extraordinary new arrival shows up. Five-year-old Alba is unlike any orangutan seen at Nyaru Menteng before. Snow white with blue eyes, Alba has albinism, making her one of the rarest orangutans in the world. She's suffered traumatic experiences in the wild, but here she seems willing to trust the humans who have her best interests at heart.
