Orangutan Diary

Documentary following the work of the Borneo Orangutan Survival Foundation, whose aim is to ensure a wild future for endangered orangutans. Presenters Michaela Strachan and Steve Leonard observe the life-and-death struggle to save irresistibly cute orangutan orphans at a jungle hospital in the middle of Borneo. They witness both success and failure as orangutans are helped to take the tentative first steps back into an independent life in the wild, and join dangerous rescue missions as anti-poaching patrols follow up tip-offs to track down orphaned babies intended for the cruel pet trade.
