Alba, a rare albino orangutan who has captivated fans far beyond her native Borneo, is now free and living in a forest among other orangutans. She was released this week in a national park in Indonesia, along with Kika, a female orangutan with whom she had become friends.

With striking blue eyes and white hair, Alba was rescued last year by the Borneo Orangutan Survival Foundation — which calls her “the only albino orangutan ever recorded.”…..

“Alba has no inferiority complex as we imagined before. She is very confident compared to other orangutans,” veterinarian Agus Fathoni told The Associated Press.  See rest of story here.
