About this book

Orang-utans offers a unique insight into one of the most fascinating members of the great ape family. WWF Malaysia's Junaidi Payne provides an informative and compelling description of the lives of orang-utans, from their habitat and behaviour to the differences between wild and captive creatures. The complex intricacies of orang-utan society and culture are revealed, along with characteristics of age and sex.

This book features information on orang-utan conservation and rehabilitation, including threats to orang-utan welfare and strategies for safeguarding orang-utans in the future. Superb photography by Cede Prudente uncovers orang-utan life in the rainforest, and showcases the stunning landscapes of Borneo and Sumatra. It includes a map of orang-utan distribution and information on where to see orang-utans in the wild.
