orangutan eye contact

Orangutan eyes

They say that the eyes are the window to the soul. Compare the two photos below. The first is a wild orangutan in Borneo and the second is a young orangutan that was found in a palm oil plantation. She’s now in a care centre in southern Borneo and the eyes say it all. But there is hope for her. The Orangutan Foundation have a release site in the Lamandau reserve that covers 76,000 hectares of forest and every penny raised goes towards conservation. Or come to Borneo on one of my orangutan fundraising trips and see their work at first hand.
