Hotmauli said this is the first experience of Wati to give birth while Ratna has given birth for eight times. The gender of two babies is still unknown. “Because they are still under the strong protection of both mothers," he said. 

Hotmauli said the National Park would not put pressure on the orangutan mothers and babies by forcing to find out the gender of both babies.

The Sumatran Orangutan Observation Center is part of the area of Mount Leuser National Park zone used for ecotourism. It is often visited by local tourists and foreign tourists.

Although the visit is crowded, orangutans in these locations still depend on the natural food in the area.
