A 33-year-old orangutan awarded “non-human” personhood rights in a landmark 2015 court decision in Argentina has settled into a new home in Florida.
“She walked into her room. She was just engaged and interested. Very calm,” said Patti Ragan, founding director of Sandra, the orangutan's new home, the Center for Great Apes in Wauchula, Florida. “She looked at every single toy left in there for her, foraged around for food in the hay, and got some blankets, went up and made a nest, and slept well.”
