This uniqueness of Alba brings both beauty and danger towards her. She has become a clear target for poachers and wildlife traffickers.

Other than that, same like other albinos, Alba has skin diseases, hearing and vision problems too.

The Borneo Orangutan Survival Foundation has taken a lot of steps to ensure her safety by now. They spent time fundraising to buy Alba her own island.

However, this story of fundraising went viral after raising $80,000. The foundation bought Alba's very own island and made her live with another 3 of her friends there.

Since Alba was taken out of his natural habitat at a very small age, she missed learning the essential things needed to live.

Therefore, she is given continuous forest training and socialization sessions. However, finally, the rarest and most unique ape in the world will be able to live a successful and a safe life as a result of all these.
