NATURE: The Last Orangutan Eden

Ecologist Chris Morgan (Bears of the Last Frontier) travels to the jungles of Northern Sumatra to document the work being done to save its population of wild orangutans, quickly dwindling due to deforestation. Morgan spends time with orphaned orangs at a rehabilitation center, observing the process of teaching them the skills they'll need to be released back into the wild. But to truly understand the complexity of wild orangutan society and learn exactly what the young orangs would have learned from their mothers in the wild, Morgan must go farther. He joins a team of experienced researchers in Suaq Balimbing, a remote peat swamp forest protected as part of a World Heritage Site. The scientists are there to study and document a unique social band of wild orangutans who use tools, share food, forage together, and create their own distinct culture. For the first time, advanced cameras follow the orangs throughout the canopy to provide an intimate, clear picture of how these arboreal apes spend their days and nights and interact with one another. At the conclusion of his journey, Morgan accompanies one special orphan orangutan as he is transported to a remote nature reserve to become part of a new community of former orphans now prepared to be wild once more.
