KLRU Schedule | Wild! | Orangutans: The Last Trimate

This stunning, high definition documentary is a compelling account of the work of Dr Biruté Galdikas and her lifelong fight to save the diminishing world of Indonesia’s wild Orangutans - a habitat threatened by rampant deforestation and palm oil plantations. In the late 60s, legendary anthropologist Louis Leakey appointed three women to study and care for the great apes of the world: Dian Fossey was asked to study the gorillas, and her murder by poachers led to the making of "Gorillas in the Mist"; Jane Goodall was allocated chimpanzees, and to this day travels the world raising funds and awareness; and Biruté Galdikas was sent to Borneo to document orangutans. Thirty-five years later Biruté is still in Borneo, based in the appropriately named Camp Leakey, and is responsible for the longest study of an animal species by a single person ever conducted. Known as the "Trimates", Biruté is the least recognised of the three women, yet her crusade is no less compelling. No-one knows more about Orangutans than Dr Galdikas.
