Description

Orangutans: My Cousins, My Friends

Combined with his personal insights Leif shares the captivating and sometimes challenging stories of the many orangutans he was worked for over the years. And most importantly, he explains the key philosophies underpinning the work of his organization, The Orangutan Project, and outlines the fundamental shifts in thinking and behavior that we, as humans, must make if we are to avoid the imminent extinction of our majestic orange cousins.

Part memoir, part philosophical discussion, part scientific case for conservation and 100% a call to action for all who wish to help save the orangutan, the talk hopes to inspire, inform and touch hearts.... And it may just change the way you see and act in the world forever.

For almost 3 decades Leif Cocks has worked tirelessly for orangutans to improve their welfare in captivity and ensure their ongoing survival in the wild. As a zoologist, author, speaker and founder of the international charity, The Orangutan Project, he is world-renowned as an orangutan expert and outspoken campaigner on their behalf.
