Orangutan Rescue gives readers a unique insight into the highs and lows of rescuing and rehabilitating this species against all the odds in a remote part of Borneo. With the aid of more than 150 superb photographs, all generously donated by award-winng photographers such as Roger Allen and Lisa Burtenshaw, author Sean Whyte aims to explain and illustrate why orangutans need our help and documents the creation in 2009 and the development over the next six years of a world-class orangutan rescue and rehabilitation centre in Borneo. The book has been made with the official collaboration of the British charity International Animal Rescue who have been responsible for the building of the orangutan rescue centre near the small, remote town of Ketapang in West Kalimantan (Indonesian Borneo). This was a monumental challenge to undertake, both financially and physically. When IAR rose to the challenge they thought they might one day be caring for 20 orangutans. Six years later they have 82 in their care with no sign of the numbers decreasing. A book for all ages, nothing like it has been published before.
