The Semenggoh Wildlife Centre is located 24km from Kuching. It was set up in 1975 to care for wild animals which had either been found injured, were orphaned or kept as illegal pets. Over the course of the years the centre took care of almost 1000 animals, from dozens of different species. Semenggoh is mainly known however for its orangutan rehabilitation programme, which has resulted in the repopulation of the surrounding forest by dozens of orangutans.
