In this post, my wife, orangutan researcher Cheryl Knott, wraps things up from her perspective. It has been an amazing summer working in the field with my wife and her team of students and research assistants in Gunung Palung National Park, in Indonesian Borneo. As we have for many years, we also took our kids Russell and Jessica with us and they had a great time at this unusual summer camp. This year, National Geographic invited all four of us to contribute stories to their PROOF blog about our adventures.
Here are links to all six of the blog posts our family members published on National Geographic:
