Pleased to see these featured in The Guardian, thx! Camp Leakey, run by OFI of which I am a member, is where my foster "child" Lear, a young male, lives in their care.

Thanks Cher. I, like Angie have adopted an Orangutan as well. Her name is "Monti" I did this through The Orangutan Project, if anyone is interested.
