Orangutan Orphanage is the second in the 4-book Wildlife Rescue series. Each book introduces a species of animal in danger somewhere in the world and profiles a rescue center that helps them. Stunning photos by award-winning wildlife photographer Suzi Eszterhas give readers a rare view of these adorable animals and the high level of care they receive.

Orangutan Orphanage invites readers inside the Orangutan Care Center and Quarantine, operated by Orangutan Foundation International, in the South Pacific jungles of Borneo. It explores why baby orangutans become orphaned and the process of healing and rehabilitating them for return to the wild. It also highlights the people who work at the rescue center and how they aid the animals.

Other special features include a map showing the orangutan's native habitat range and an index, glossary, sources, and author Q&A based on common questions from kids. An author's note at the end introduces readers to small-scale ways in which even they can help save orangutans.

A portion of the royalties from this book will be donated to the Orangutan Care Center and Quarantine in Borneo.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "If the concept of a rescue center for orphaned orangutans isn't enough to hook readers, then the large, glossy photographs of the big-eyed, wild-haired babies certainly will be. This second installment in the Wildlife Rescue series heads to Borneo for a look at the care center that raises baby orangutans and prepares them for eventual release into the wild. With an attractive layout and easy-to-read text, this guide starts by examining the lives of orangutans in the wild and the circumstances that led to the babies being orphaned. Parallels are continually drawn between humans and orangutans, explaining how our similar biologies allow people to be such effective foster parents for the apes. The orangutans age throughout the book initial photos show small, soulful-eyed babies drinking from bottles and clinging to their foster moms, while the later images depict the more mature fellows monkeying around in trees and impressing onlookers. An end chapter on conservation efforts and steps kids can take to help wildlife enhance this handsome volume.--Reagan, Maggie Copyright 2016 Booklist"
