Orangutan Awareness Week

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?
