The name means "dawn" in Spanish and "white" in Latin, and the Borneo Orangutan Survival (BOS) Foundation said the choice carried great significance. . . .
The white-haired, blue-eyed animal was rescued on the Indonesian part of Borneo island last month from villagers who had been keeping her in a cage.
The BOS Foundation says it is the first time in its 25-year history that it has taken in an albino orangutan.
The five-year-old was in poor condition after being rescued but the foundation said she was now having a "great recovery" and had gained about 4.5 kilograms (about 10 pounds) in the past fortnight.
