Description

Celebrate the launch of Leif Cocks' 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 the beautiful Osmond Terrace Function Centre in Norwood Hotel, Adelaide.

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 one of our Indonesian partner organisations will join Leif at the Adelaide Book Launch. Panut Hadisiswoyo, Founder of the Orangutan Information Centre, will share stories, images and videos of the work your donations make possible.

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!

Leif is an outspoken advocate for both wildlife and vulnerable communities and is recognised globally as an expert in his field.

Don’t miss this unique opportunity to hear one of our partners share how the funds we raise are going towards crucial orangutan and habitat conservation in Indonesia.
