The Borneo Orangutan Survival Foundation (BOS) of Australia is proud to present this three-city speaking tour, featuring Anton Nurcahyo and Lou Grossfeldt, two of the world’s primary orangutan conservation experts.Having devoted their lives to creating a better life for the endangered orangutans of Indonesia, this August, Anton and Lou will share their amazing first hand experiences working with BOS, the largest great ape conservation institution in the world.Sharing amazing never-before-seen photos and footage from BOS’s “Orangutan School”, the pair will enlighten you on this amazing species, which shares 97% of our DNA.

You’ll also learn about the ongoing and urgent effort to rescue and rehabilitate injured, orphaned and displaced orangutans with the ultimate goal of releasing them back into protected wilderness: safe from human development, poaching and farming. Equal parts fascinating and entertaining, Anton and Lou will thrill you with their knowledge and stories from the front-line in the battle to save these amazing creatures.

Anton Nurcahyo, Deputy CEO of Borneo Orangutan Survival Foundation will be speaking about his journey in discovering a new species of orangutan and the programs run by BOS.

Lou Grossfeldt is one of Australias most respected primate experts. She will enthral you with her stories of working with Orangutans in Indonesia. Her special area of interest is behavioural enrichment for unreleasable Orangutans. She will also share how you can be part of our programme in Indonesia.

* No live orangutans will be at the event, they are fast asleep in their treetop nests after dark!
