"Cahaya’s arrival came as a surprise to all of us at the Center. In our 27 year history we have successfully implemented birth control methods for all of our sanctuary residents with no “birth control failures” until now. Her mother Sunshine has been on birth control since her arrival in 2017 so we had no reason to believe she was pregnant. However, one morning in February just minutes after her birth our caregivers discovered a tiny bit of orange fluff climbing up Sunshine’s chest.
Our staff voted on the name Cahaya, which in Indonesian means “light”, “radiant” and “shine”. We thought this an appropriate name for Sunshine’s offspring."
