Orangutan Diary, Series 2 Episode 6 of 6

Steve Leonard and Michaela Strachan catch up with some of the orangutans and people who've made their time at the world's biggest ape rescue operation such a rich experience. There have been dramatic rescues, loveable orphans with tragic stories and the emotional release of orangutans back to the wild. We reflect on the work of the centre and the long-term fate of over 600 rescued orangutans in its care. Can some of our closest animal relatives be saved from extinction?
