Talks at Kew: How to Save OrangutansTue 09 November 2010, 7pm
Ashley Leiman OBE, director of the Orangutan Foundation, will talk about orangutan conservation and how the Foundation is saving wild orangutans and the incredible biodiversity of their rainforest home.
Orangutan - Pongo pygmaeus
The lecture will show a stunning array of images from Borneo including, orangutans, rainforest biodiversity and traditional village communities. Ashley will share with the audience the Foundation’s experience over the last 20 years, describing their most innovative projects and explaining why she believes orangutans are not doomed for extinction.
Ashley Leiman has been actively involved in Asian conservation for over 30 years. After a visit to Tanjung Puting National Park, Indonesian Borneo, as an Earthwatch Institute volunteer, Ashley set about establishing the Orangutan Foundation in the UK.
