Honolulu Zoo: A place of refuge

The Honolulu Zoo is a place of rescue for many animals. Rusti is a 315-lb male orangutan that came to the Honolulu Zoo in bad condition about 10 years ago. Joyce Monteville, a Honolulu Zoo volunteer for 14 years said, “Rusti was part of a circus act, when he came to the zoo his hair was matted and he was afraid of many things.”
