Kutai NP Educational Campaign Features our Orangutan Content

Orangutan Experience brochure

We are thrilled to write that our posts on Kutai National Park have caught the attention of national park authorities in Indonesia. We were contacted by representatives from Kutai NP who asked to use our photos in educational materials that they will be distributing to schools and government offices across the country. How exciting!

My post titled The Orangutan Experience was translated into Indonesian and included in a 34-page educational brochure which also includes articles from researchers and political figures concerned about the park. As you can see in the first image above, the title of my post was chosen as the title for the brochure.

Thomas’ and my photography of Kutai and its famous orangutans are shown on many pages throughout the brochure (other photographers are included as well), and our pictures are used for the front cover as well as the back cover.

Perhaps the most exciting development is that Thomas’ fantastic video Orangutans of Kutai National Park will be included on a DVD distributed along with the brochure to help educate the Indonesian public on the remarkable beauty and value of their spectacular natural heritage. What an honor!!!

We are so excited to hear that our posts and video will be included in educational materials which just might help to save this precious piece of Kalimantan’s wilderness. We are also very impressed that the national park system of Indonesia is taking steps to educate the public on the importance of saving orangutan habitat.
