Best book on Orangutans!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Thinkers of the Jungle (Hardcover)
This is a must-read for anyone interested in learning more about Orangutans, it is packed full of information on all different subjects about orangutans and includes lovely colourful photographs on nearly every page. It also includes lots of information on The Borneo Orangutan Survival Foundation (BOS) - who were in Orangutan Diary, as well as some of the book written by the founder of BOS. I had previously read the WWF book Orangutans: Behaviour, Ecology and Conservation which I enjoyed but I much prefered this book and the way it was written. It includes fasinating chapers on Orangutan behaviour and how similar they are to humans - 97% the same! There are also stories about the lives of specific orangutans and some of the amazing things that they have done as well as stories about some of the orangutans rescued by BOS including photographs of an orangutans swimming which has never before been photographed and never before been seen in the wild. If you enjoyed the Orangutan Diaries series then this book is a must!
