Heading for Arnhem Land tomorrow for a survey of rock art and won’t have internet access until the end of the week. So a few extra posts today, beginning with some photos I took in Sarawak in 2011 at the Semenggoh Wildlife Centre, just on the edge of the capital Kuching. The Orang Utans live wild and come to feeding stations when they feel inclined. If there is plenty fruiting in the jungle you’re not likely to see them. We were lucky and a family of about 10 swung down to the feeding platform on the other side of a gully which separates the visitors from the locals. A wonderful experience but not so wonderful as to make one forget the big picture of habitat loss facing this and many more species all around the globe.
