Photographer's Note

Another shot from most recent visit of the Singapore Zoological Gardens. By far my favorite exhibit is the Orangutans, I can spend hours just sitting and watching/ photographing their funny antics and human like behaviour.

In Malay orang means "person" and utan is derived from hutan, which means "forest." Thus, orangutan literally means "person of the forest."

The Singapore Zoological Gardens has bred a total of 21 orangutans to date, as part of a worldwide exchange program to facilitate breeding of this highly endangered ape.

To learn more about orangutans, and what you can do to help, please go to
