Ollie, the Erie Zoo’s 9-year-old Bornean orangutan, will be moved to the San Francisco Zoo in spring or summer 2019 as part of a breeding program. He was born in 2009 at the Erie Zoo to Dasa and Joe, both of whom will remain at the Erie Zoo along with Otis, born in 2017. The orangutans’ first baby, Leela, was transferred to the Toledo Zoo at age 9 in 2012. Take a look at Ollie’s stay at the zoo in Erie Times-News staff photos.
