My last Orangutan post before I share another project.
Sweethope, a 12 year old male and completely wild. I took this photo after he had caught the mooring rope and began to pull the boat to the river bank.
His strength and dexterity was unbelievable. Pulling the rope hand over hand, until it was close enough that he could sit with us on the deck. A highlight of the 3 days we spent in the Borneo jungle over my birthday. Kalimantan, Indonesia. November 2016.
