Deep in the Borneo rainforest, a dedicated team of veterinarians and caregivers has a massive and emotional task ahead of them: rescuing and nursing the jungle's most appealing - and most vulnerable - animals back to health. Currently there are approximately 600 orangutans being cared for day and night at the Borneo Orangutan Survival Foundation Centre. Most have had traumatic lives, clinging to survival as rainforests are burned around them, while others are snatched from the wild to be sold as pets.
An Emotional rollercoaster in the heart of the rainforest, Orangutan Diary presents an inside look at the lives of these animals on the edge.
Orangutan Diary airs Wednesday, August 15th at 7:00 p.m. during Fall Festival 2012.
