Actions for Animals

Wildlife and our last remaining wild places are being destroyed because of human action or inaction and because of our own short –term greed.

Channel 4's Orangutan Jungle School starts on Wednesday 15 August 2018 at 8pm

Flicking through the television coming up for the week, the Pick of the Week (according to the Sunday Times)  is Channel 4's Orangutan Jungle School.

The series charts the lives of orangutans at a rescue centre in Borneo.  

Back in 2009, the BBC series Orangutan Diary visited the Nyaru Menteng Rescue Centre.   The veterinary team had released 36 apes back into the wild.

They were taking in many more, however.  These were sick and injured, as deforestation destroyed their homes.  

Channel 4 has this new series starting up, and the word is that we should be prepared to laugh and cry in the same hour.  

Don't forget - the Channel 4 series starts on Wednesday 15 August 2018 at 8pm.  


There's a list of orangutan charities here.

Plus don't forget to wear RED on International Orangutan Day, Sunday 19 August 2018 - find out more here
