Leif Cocks, a former zookeeper from Australia, has dedicated his life to reintroducing endangered orangutans into the wild, something previously thought impossible.
At a jungle school in Sumatra, Indonesia, rescued orangutans learn how to climb, forage and fend for themselves in the forests.
Cocks has successfully reintroduced 180 of these animals into the natural habitat and plans to save 8,000 more over the next decade.
Can the ‘Orangutan Whisperer’ and his jungle school help save the endangered species from extinction?
