This week is Orangutang awareness week. You can see the different events during Orangutan awareness week here.
I didn't know much about Orangutans until I saw BBC's documentary, Orangutan Diary, few years ago. If you haven't seen it yet, do take time to watch it: very well made documentary and the orangutan's are completely adorable, especially the baby ones.
Orangutans are one of the species that are having a tough time due to the deforestation in Indonesia and Malaysia for the palm oil plantation.
Here is adorable video I saw yesterday:
Just in time for this awarenss week a new book on organutans has been published. A nice Christmas gift maybe?
