Celebrate the launch of Leif’s third book

To mark the international launch of Leif Cocks' third highly anticipated book, Finding Our Humanity, The Orangutan Project is holding a special event at Queen Alexandra Home in Coorparoo, Brisbane.

Join us for a thought-provoking presentation by world-renowned orangutan expert, Leif Cocks, who will share his unique perspective on what the great apes, our tribal past, and a more philosophical approach to life can teach us about our humanity.

We are also thrilled to announce a Special Guest Speaker from northern Sumatra is joining Leif at the Brisbane Book Launch. Panut Hadisiswoyo is the Founder of the Orangutan Information Centre, one of our key partners in Indonesia. He will share dramatic videos and stories of orangutan rescues, rainforest regeneration and community education.

Leif Cocks is the Founder and President of The Orangutan Project, International Elephant Project and International Tiger Project. Panut Hadisiswoyo is Founder of the Orangutan Information Centre, based in northern Sumatra. Leif will also be available to sign personal copies of his new book, and you’ll also have a chance to buy copies if his first two books.

Following these presentations, Leif and Panut will answer your questions during a special Q&A Panel. If you've ever wanted to ask the tough questions about big-picture wildlife conservation and orangutan rescues, this is your chance!
