About this title
Praise for the previous edition:
"A fascinating firsthand account of the behavior and intelligence of orangutans, Russon's book is also an account of the successes, failures, and politics of orangutan rehabilitation in the forests of Borneo and Sumatra... The book is lavishly illustrated with full color photographs."
The only great apes found in Asia, these arboreal wizards are by nature elusive and solitary, and inhabit nearly inaccessible tropical rainforests. The tragedy is that orangutans are almost extinct, surviving in the wild only on the islands of Borneo and Sumatra where human influx is rapidly appropriating their habitat.
Based on fifteen years of research, this extraordinary and definitive book focuses on orangutan intelligence and behavior.
This book includes:
With one hundred color photographs taken by the author during her visits to the rainforests, Orangutans is an absorbing and instructive look at the unusual world of orangutans.From the Publisher:
Chosen by Booklist (American Library Association) as one of the top "Adult Science Books for Young Adults" in the year ending November 2000.
