Orangutans are the most arboreal of the great apes and spend most of their time in trees. Their hair is typically reddish-brown, instead of the brown or black hair typical of chimpanzees and gorillas.
Dr. Galdikas has protected one of last havens for orangutans in Borneo, despite the tremendous pressures from illegal logging and mining interests. During an OFI Eco Tour, Dr. Galdikas will share her expertise in the areas of primatology, anthropology, and conservation. Learn firsthand about her many years of experience with our extraordinary and endangered primate cousins.
