Man, what a great trip…caring, funny people. Unbelievable scenery….
This photo is not as sad as it looks. We had the (dis) honor (fun?) of hanging with orangutan conservation superstar/personality Ian Singleton yesterday. He apologized for the state of the Sumatran Orangutan Conservation Project (SOCP). It’s being expanded, so this might mislead. On top of being a zealous advocate for education about wildlife, and an ambitious new orangutan home (and a fan of horribly bad British jokes and puns), he needlessly apologized for the state of SOCP’s current digs. It’s being expanded, so don’t be misled by this photo. The future for these redapes is bright. Just needs the money.
