Here, I’m with someone’s pet brown lemur (Lemur fulvus fulvus) in northern
Here, I am wrestling and tickling with two juvenile male orangutans, Apollo Bob and Asep in 1987
at Camp Leakey, Tanjung Puting National Park, Kalimantan Tengah, Indonesia. These orangutans
were former pets that were released back into the wild at this location. I assisted Dr.
Biruté Galdikas with her research on orangutans as a volunteer for
Earthwatch. Dr. Galdikas is currently supported by the Orangutan Foundation International.
