And while he isn't completely out of the woods, his rescuers can't help but hope for the best. "It is still too early to tell if Gito's sad start to life will have had any long term effects on his health," the group added. "However, the vets are very pleased with his progress and we are all hopeful that one day he will be released back into the wild."
He's also becoming more active. A video from earlier this month shows the formerly lifeless orangutan swinging on a bar with the help of his physiotherapist.
