Orangutan Lecture Series Planned for June 2013
1 May 2013 - Santa Monica, CA. Orangutan experts Leif Cocks and Gary Shapiro want you to "Hang Out for Orangutans" (and with them) as they give a series of illustrated lectures together in cities around the United States during mid-June 2013. Both men have dedicated large portions of their lives to understanding, conserving and managing the orangutan. Cocks was the head orangutan keeper and then Curator in Perth Zoo for 25 years and Shapiro was the first person to teach sign language to free-ranging orangutans in the late 1970s.
