By  | 

TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW)-- A Topeka Zoo resident is celebrating his first birthday.

Baby orangutan Bumi turns one year old today! Zoo guests signed a birthday card for the special birthday boy and just like all babies born in the social media age, visitors had the chance to watch a video on Bumi's life.

Zoo guests were also encouraged to sign a petition encouraging companies to use sustainable forms of palm oil.

Sustainable palm oils come from plantations where palm oils is produced, which minimizes the risk to the orangutan habitats.
