ANIMAL CONSERVATION









































To the Orang-Utan Rehabilitation Centre in Indonesia.
These tourists were having the ride of their life. But really, there is no risk involved, afterall, they survived the drive from the city!

In the morning and the afternoon orangutans come out of the forest to be feed (hang onto your belongings) Others can be seen in captivity at the centre.

Accessed by walking path, any backpacker or tourist would remember Jungle Inn right nearby that river crossing in an appealing unsophisticated environment. It's a small world- the owners have connections with Newcastle.

A quaint group of rustic cafes and lodgings hang in there half local and half global in style. Tourism has not overtaken the area and has been slack for several years.

Great photos. I like your commentary that the ride from the city was more dangerous than the boat one!!

Thanks for visiting my NorthBayPhoto blog.

I liked your post today and hope the wildlife there will always have a good home.

As for visitors being safer...I can say that most wildlife visitors are troubled by dirt trails and dandling cob webs and things that bite for no apparent reason.
