This lovely footage captured by Orangutan Foundation's camera trap provides a glimpse into the peaceful life of the proboscis monkey (Nasalis larvatus).This footage was taken in September 2018 (the date on the camera traps keep defaulting to 01.01.2014 - we're not sure why!) The camera trap is located behind the Sungai Buluh Besar Guard Post, in Tanjung Puting National Park, Indonesian Borneo. This primate species is endemic (only found on) to Borneo. They often share the same habitat as orangutans.

As so many of you seemed to enjoy @bwmphoto photos last week we thought we'd share another (and the uncropped version). These particularly highlight the extremely close bond between mother orangutans and their offspring and reminds us why it is so important that we protect them so they can stay together in the wild, where they belong.

As it is #CharityTuesday we want to highlight our work to save this critically endangered species and it's globally important forest habitat. We are a small but active charity working to keep forests standing and orangutans in the wild. Find out more about what we do by visiting our bio. Thank you.
