Orang-utan Orphans follows the ups and downs of the lives of these special animals as they are cared for at specialist rescue centres in Borneo and Sumatra in southeast Asia and focuses on both individual animals and the incredible people who look after them. Packed with emotional stories, but these books are also supported by environmental and educational content. Each book touches on issues such as conservation, habitat destruction, poaching, how each animal lives in the wild and how they are cared for in captivity.
