Student Matinee | Adventures Among Orangutans
- Tim Laman, Photographer and Biologist
- Cheryl Knott, Biological Anthropologist
Orangutans are one of the world’s least understood large land animals because they are solitary creatures living in hard-to-reach places. Since 1992, biological anthropologist Cheryl Knott and wildlife photojournalist Tim Laman have been using innovative techniques and new technologies to gain a closer look at this intelligent, resourceful—and threatened—species giving students insights not only into their world, but also our own.
