Keagan was born at a breeding facility in Miami, taken from her mother as an infant, and sold to a trainer for work in entertainment and live stage shows. At six, she was relinquished to the Center for Great Apes, where her brother and sister joined her. At the sanctuary, they can live their lives as orangutans. Keagan's caregivers describe Keagan as curious, innovative, and resourceful. Individuals like Keagan have the right to life and freedom from harm. Everyone has a story, whether used for experimentation or entertainment, victimized by the exotic pet trade, or facing increasing perils in the wild. Their stories are inextricably linked with our own, and like ours, are filled with both loss and hope.
