The Human Orangutan Conflict Response Unit (HOCRU) has been featured in a primetime BBC documentary, Wonders of the Monsoon.
Paul Williams and Jon Clay, members the crew who filmed with our team, have written an excellent blog post about the experience.
"At the end of this episode we feature, what for me, was one of the most emotional shoots I have ever done. I joined cameraman and producer Jon Clay to help document the story of a select group of people, part of the Sumatran Orangutan Society, who have dedicated their lives to protecting and rescuing one of our closest cousins - the Sumatran orangutan. My primary role was to document the shoot for our 'behind the scenes' section that follows the main show. The result is a sequence that I hope will inspire you to stop and think."
You can read the rest of their account and watch some emotional behind the scenes footage online (see link below).
Thank you for helping us to reach these orangutans in danger, on behalf of the HOCRU team.
