2021 has been another unusual year, but I’m still feeling thankful. This thanksgiving holiday, I want to help raise awareness and support for Orangutan Conservation in Borneo. I hope you will take a moment to read on.
As those of you who have followed my work for a while know, documenting the lives of wild orangutans in partnership with my wife, researcher Cheryl Knott, has been a major part of my life’s work over that past 25 years. Using the media I create to spread the word in National Geographic articles and films has been a big part of what I do. But it has now been two years since I was last in Borneo in documenting orangutans. Yet, we are fortunate that the non-profit group Cheryl founded, now run in Indonesia by an Indonesian team of over thirty people, have been able to persist throughout the pandemic in their conservation, education, and community support activities that all help to protect orangutans in Gunung Palung, one of the world’s most important remaining wild orangutan sanctuaries.
So I’m very thankful to them and for all their efforts, and I’m dedicating this newsletter and print-sale fundraiser to the Gunung Palung Orangutan Project!
