For many months of each year, I am in the field on my own. But most summers in recent years, I have traveled with my wife Cheryl Knott, who is a Boston University professor and orangutan researcher, to her field site in Gunung Palung National Park in Borneo. And we have also been taking our children with us. This year I have been working on a new orangutan project for National Geographic, and NatGeo asked us to also cover the family angle. So we have been writing a series of blog posts for their PROOF blog.
