    An amazing book !!!

    I strongly recommend this amazing book to anyone wanting to know more about orangutans.

    As the title says, this book is stuffed with amazing intimate informations and details about orangutans, Borneo, Sumatra and the people close to them.
    Shawn takes us on a journey around the globe meeting amazing scientists, keepers, ordinary people extraodinary to orangutans and some rescued orangutans.
    Gary Shapiro raising Princess and teaching her sign language. Willie Smits regrowing the forest. Biruté Galdikas dedicating her whole life to Camp Leakey. Kusasi the dominant. The extraordinary keepers of the Chaffee Zoological Gardens...

    As I read Shawn's book I could learn and understand the world of orangutan conservation. Its complexity.
    The description of the relationship of Gary Shapiro and Princess is sublim. I think of Princess all the time now.

    The sad end is orangutans are disappearing extremely fast. Heartless people make them suffer for nothing but money and cruelty. Babies who should never leave their mothers become orphans because of pet trade and the palm oil industry. Forests are disappearing along with birds, reptiles, mammals...
