Orangutan See, Orangutan Do

Located in the Tanjung Puting Reserve in Central Borneo (Kalimantan Tengah), Camp Leakey is a research facility for native orangutans.  The biologists don’t try to train the primates, they observe them while providing safety, food, and shelter, and let the ‘rangs live and let live.  The orangutans, however, observe the humans, and have learned some behavior from them, like rowing and perhaps the most surprising: doing laundry.  Watch the video to learn more!
