Orphaned orangutans, their parents killed for their value as 'exotic' animals, face a struggle to survive in the jungles of Borneo. The researchers of Camp Leakey rescue the young and try to help the species hang on. This episode primarily follows the young male Kusasi and profiles the work of the scientists who care for him. Having run away from hunters, Kusasi was in danger every day. He had no mother to protect and feed him; did he feed himself, or locate other orangutans to adopt him? How did he make it back in fairly good health to the zoologists' camp? Kusasi, Princess and other orangutans became the subjects of a very successful in-depth study on survival skills, problem-solving and communcation. Follow the studies of primatologists Birute Galdikas, Gary Shapiro and their colleagues as they work to increase our knowledge of the 'red apes' and maintain the beautiful animals' place in this world.moreless
