This book is essential reading for anyone interested in the future of the orangutan.

Published by Ullman and written by journalist, Gerd Schuster with contributions from Willie Smits, the book presents an exceptional insight into the lives of orangutans and the threats to their continued existence.

Here are a couple of recent reader reviews:

“A wonderful and poignant book that stays in the mind long after you put it down. Harsh realities and heartbreaking truths are disclosed as the authors refuse to shy away from exposing the cruelties orangutans suffer at human hands. The stunning photos also prove that researchers have only just begun to scratch the surface when it comes to unravelling the complex character of this incredibly intelligent and gentle great ape as it fights for survival.”
J Elford – UK

“An outstanding book with more superb photos than any other on this subject. Besides the photos its coverage of related issues is the most comprehensive you will ever read; thankfully the whole book is written in a journalistic rather than scientific style.”
Sean Whyte, CEO Nature Alert – UK

Adopt an Orangutan

Adopt an Orangutan

Orangutans are endangered and at risk of extinction. Habitat destruction means hundreds of orphan orangutans need to care for every year. You can help by adopting one. Their dedicated ‘nannies’ teach them everything they need to know for when it’s time to release them back to the wild. You can follow their progress through Forest School.
