[National Geographic] Orangutan (오랑우탄)

Gunung Palung National Park, Indonesia
Tim Laman

“Deep in Borneo, a male orangutan we [anthropologist Cheryl Knot and assistants] call Jari Manis feeds on wild ginger stems as he keeps an eye on a female he’s been shadowing. My team of assistants and I track the elusive apes from dawn to dusk, when they bed down in a nest in the trees. Mixing modern science with old-fashioned fieldwork, we are breaking new ground in understanding how wild orangutans have adapted to their rain forest home.”

???From “Orangutans in the Wild,” August 1998, National Geographic magazine
