Orangutan Diary Previous Broadcasts

KQED 9: Sun, Aug 12, 2012 -- 6:30 AM

Deep in the Borneo rainforest, a dedicated team of vets and care-givers have a massive and emotional task ahead of them: to rescue and nurse back to health the jungle's most appealing - and most vulnerable - animals. There are currently 600 (approx.) vulnerable orangutans being cared for, day and night, at the Borneo Orangutan Foundation. Most have had traumatic lives, clinging to survival as rainforests are burned around them, or snatched from the wild to be sold as pets. For the team of vets and care-givers, every day is a challenge - not only nursing the orphans, but also dealing with the everyday human crises of life in a rainforest hospital.
