A RESCUED orangutan is learning to climb again after developing a fear of heights in captivity.
Five-year-old Kukur had been tied up and kept in a hut.
He made a timid start at a rehab centre in Borneo but grew in confidence with other apes.
Alan Knight, of International Animal Rescue, said: “We can’t replace his mother but, with coaxing from the keepers and his orangutan friends, he is starting to develop skills ready for a return to his rightful home.”
