'Person of the Forest'
The name orangutan literally means ‘person of the forest’. The explosion of palm oil production in Borneo and other tropical countries is having a huge impact on wildlife. John Dyer and Dr David Ashe will travel to Borneo to see the orangutans and find out what pressures these ‘people’ are under. Painting orangutans and the rainforest in Borneo will provide an amazing opportunity to engage in a whole range of environmental issues and exciting environments.
