WHEN ANNIE DISAPPEARED AND KEEPERS WERE BUSY LOOKING FOR HIM

The absence of Annie at the forest school means that Jhonny the animal keeper is off from work. The average students of the forest school class will attend the class for 20 days a month. The other 10 days will be spent in the cage with various enrichment due to heavy rain or when the keeper is on day-offs.

After a day-off from forest school, Annie is usually more enthusiastic about the class. Annie chose his tree and nightmare was inevitable. Annie disappeared from Jhonny’s sight. Jhony then asked for help from other keepers. If the student of forest school disappeared from animal keeper’s sight, usually by calling the orangutan’s name, they will notify their position to the keepers by breaking the twigs or shaking the leaves. But this time was different. Annie was silent, hiding and letting the animal keeper confused looking for him.

Turned out, Annie was climbing the big, tall tree that day. When he was tired of playing on the tree, he went down and sought Happi to get away from the forest school location. Jhonny was almost getting a heart attack, though he had just turned his attention away from Annie for a moment and watched Popi that didn’t want to do anything. “Annie!!! Please if someone calls you, you have to notify ok!”, said Jhonny furiously. (SAR)

SAAT ANNIE MENGHILANG DAN KEEPER SIBUK MENCARI
Tak ada Annie di sekolah hutan, itu berarti, Jhonny si animal keeper pilihannya sedang libur. Rata-rata siswa kelas sekolah hutan akan hadir di kelas untuk 20 hari dalam satu bulan. Sepuluh hari lainnya, mereka habiskan di kandang dengan enrichment yang bervariasi karena hujan deras atau saat keeper sedang libur.

Setelah hari libur dari sekolah hutan, biasanya Annie lebih bersemangat untuk kelas ini. Annie memilih pohonnya. Dan mimpi buruk pun tak terhindarkan. Annie hilang dari pantauan Jhonny. Jhonny pun meminta bantuan para animal keeper yang lainnya. Jika para siswa sekolah hutan hilang dari pantauan animal keeper, biasanya dengan memanggil namanya orangutan tersebut, orangutan yang dipanggil akan memberitahukan keberadaannya dengan mematahkan ranting atau menggoyang-goyangkan daun. Namun berbeda dengan Annie. Annie diam, bersembunyi dan membiarkan animal keeper bingung mencarinya.

Ternyata, Annie memanjat pohon yang besar dan tinggi hari itu. Ketika dia sudah bosan bermain di atas pohon, dia akan turun ke tanah lalu mengajak orangutan Happi untuk menjauh dari lokasi sekolah hutan. Hampir saja jantung Jhonny copot, padahal dia baru saja sesaat memalingkan perhatiannya dari Annie karena Popi lagi tidak mau ngapa-ngapain. “Annie!!! Kalau kamu dipanggil kamu harus kasih tahu ya!”, ujar Jhonny gemas.
