The Daily Booktalk: Fact Friday - Orangutan Orphanage by Suzi Eszterhas

Orangutan Orphanage by Suzi Eszterhas. 44 p. Wildlife Rescue Series. Owlkids Books, March, 2016. 9781711471411.
About a month ago, I became smitten by the cover of Eszterhaus' latest photoessay, Moto and Me and decided to read her other books. Eszterhaus traveled to Borneo to visit the Orangutan International Foundation's Orangutan Care Center and Quarantine to document the vital work they do there to rescue orphaned orangutans and care for them until they are old enough to return to the wild. Women from a nearby village are trained to care for orphans one-on-one. They follow a strict protocol for diet and activity. Crisp, clear full-color photographs induce "Aw!" frequently. More information about orangutan rescue is provided at the end. This book is part of a series called Wildlife Rescue.
