Today I’m off to Borneo and Sumatra (and Java and Bali) with Orangutan Outreach and International Animal Rescue for two weeks. I hope to have dispatches from my trip but I’ll be traveling with the real heroes (such a clichéd overused word), but they’re the ones in the field, funding the rescue, rehab and release of orphaned orangs back into protected land.
No doubt I’ll be bummed at the environmental destruction I’ll see at the hands of the palm oil companies. I promise, I’ll try to keep my anger in check. In the meantime, please visit redapes.org.
