ATLANTA -- Zoo Atlanta is one of many zoos worldwide participating in Orangutan Caring Week, which began Nov. 11.

The Grant Park zoo held a special demonstration at its orangutan habitat on Sunday and will host another one on Saturday, Nov. 17.

Activities include a zookeeper Q&A session at 11 a.m. and a feeding at 2:15 p.m. Special feedings will also be held throughout Orangutan Caring Week.

According to Zoo Atlanta spokeswoman Keisha Hines, Atlanta's zoo has the largest zoological collection of orangutans in the U.S. The zoo's 13 orangutans range in age from 2 to 42; one of them, 16-year-old Blaze, is due to give birth in January.
