And the fluffy red-head apes are delighted as well, as they can be seen smirking and relaxing on their road home.

The video shows the wheelbarrow dropping off the babies to their cages at the Orangutan Rescue Centre in West Borneo, ahead of being rehomed.

Karmele Llano Sanchez, from International Animal Rescue, said: “The rehabilitation process takes a long time and the funds and effort it requires are considerable.

“The length of the process depends on each individual, some are quick to learn but some take longer.

Alan Knight OBE, Chief Executive of International Animal Rescue, said: “It’s heartening that so many people are concerned about the desperate plight of orangutans in Indonesia.

“The appeal has got off to an incredible start.

“We still have a long way to go but we’re really encouraged by the response so far and more determined.”
