Hongshan Forest Zoo in Nanjing, China, has launched a blog to find love for Leshen, the only orangutan in the zoo.

The People’s Daily reports that Leshan is the first and the only orangutan nurtured in China.

“We have had contacts with zoos in Shanghai, Hangzhou and Qinhuangdao, but failed to find an appropriate mate for him. Therefore we have to send out invitation of marriage worldwide.” a spokesman for the Zoo told the paper.
