Join Dr. Biruté Galdikas.
The world’s leading orangutan expert, Dr. Biruté Mary Galdikas has studied orangutans for over 44 years, longer than any other researcher. On this trip you will see the orangutans through her eyes, making it a special and unique experience. You will visit the sites of Dr. Galdikas’ work including her famous research site at Camp Leakey and the Orangutan Care Center and Quarantine Facility, which houses over 330 orangutan orphans. As you witness orangutan behavior Dr. Galdikas will provide explanations and insight. She will impart her wisdom and expertise on these remarkable creatures and will delight you with her stories about both orangutans and Indonesian culture. She will also explain why conservation is key to preventing the extinction of the orangutan species.
You will also spend time along the river viewing other wildlife, including comical proboscis monkeys swinging in the trees, silver leaf monkeys, red leaf monkeys, rhinoceros hornbills, and the ever-present macaque. On our forest walks you are likely to see Bornean bearded pigs, gibbons, and possibly a barking deer.
