Our #cameratraps provide a glimpse into the world of the #orangutan and some of the species that share its habitat. Particularly delightful is the baby Pig-tailed Macaque's face poking out!

Listening to Sir David Attenborough on @BBCRadio4  reminded us of his encounter with this paper butterfly (Idea Stolli) or tree nymph, as they are sometimes called, when filming with us in #Borneo for Life of Mammals. Image from our photobook, The Orangutan's World. View it on our online shop, via our website, link in bio! Only £20 and all proceeds go towards our orangutan habitat #forest restoration programme.

This image taken by a drone shows one of our #orangutan release camps, Camp Buluh, in the 158,000 acre Lamandau Wildlife Reserve, Indonesian #Borneo. Our staff monitor the rescued orangutans, and protect the #forests and #wildlife from illegal activity.  This camp is home to orphaned orangutans Into and Shifa, who are in our soft-release programme. Help is to protect this forest and become a Guardian of the Reserve from 55p a day.

Bornean female orangutan Ebony was released into the Lamandau Willdife Reserve, Indonesian Borneo in 2005. Here's she is with her infant, Ekon in 2016.  This second photo shows them last week. They occasionally come for supplementary fruit at Camp Gemini but remain very shy of humans.

Rescued in January 2016, when she was only 9 months old, Timtom has made remarkable progress. She's very playful and quite mischievous keeping our staff busy! She's one of 10 orphaned #orangutans in our soft-release programme, Indonesian #Borneo, and eventually will be returned to the wild in the protected Lamandau Wildlife Reserve. 
Until then, our staff will look after TomTom and her redheaded friends.

This is Queen, critically endangered Bornean #orangutan, released back to the wild in 2003. Wonderful to see her wading through the swamp #forests of the protected Lamandau Willdife Reserve, Indonesian #Borneo, with her infant Qila, about 3-years old. #Redape #rainforest #photographer #wildlife #photography #animalprotection #animalrescue
Which way up? Another fabulous image showing 6-year old #orangutan Okto taking a mouthful water. Cared for at Camp Buluh, Lamandau Wildlife Reserve #Borneo, Okto needs to spend more time on his nest-making skills and less time playing!  Support our work and visit our website, link in bio.
