I like this video a lot and would like if I was one of the staff at the orangutan sanctury.

The people at this orangutan sanctuary are true heroes. I could watch the footage of the babies all day long.

An extremely moving documentary series about an extraordinary animal rescue shelter in Borneo which is painstakingly preparing some 600 orangutans for possible introduction into the wild. The orangutans had faced probable death as a result of the diminishing of their environment, human cruelty and extrene trauma from seeing their mothers killed. The dedication of the center's founder and staff of 150 is inspiring. They include young women "babysitters" for the youngest orangutans, and young men on the rescue team, who wade through hip-deep jungle water to find and save solitary endangered orangutans. The orangutans themselves, including wheelbarrows full of young ones, s, capture your heart. This is an extremely memorable film series.
