Orangutans

The Orangutan: The Geography and Biology, with Katherine Meier                              

Connecticut native Katherine Meier spent a year conducting wild primate field research in the heart of Indonesian Borneo. There she spent days following  wild orangutans, collecting behavioral and physical data, and contributing to long term research that focuses on the nutrition and health of wild orangutans. Her presentation covers an overview of orangutan geography and biology. Through photos, videos and stories, she shares the ups and downs of life as a field primatologist working in a tropical peat swamp. From fire ants to fatal fights, you’ll leave this talk with a better understanding of one of the worlds most important ecosystems, its myriad of biodiversity, and, of course, an intimate look into the wild lives of the world’s only Asian great ape.
