IN THE JUNGLE
This wonderful animal was larking about near the Orang-Utan Rehabilitation centre in Sumatera. Conservation of jungle habitat is paramount (and conservation is something we can't achieve in Australia either)
The colourful fruit went to us tourists.
As for tourism, among many ventures, some ex-Newcastle folk have a surfing safari out of Padang (Sumatra), despite all the recent natural disasters, have a fast, well appointed, boat to the islands where the waves are awesome and called Tengirri Surf Charters
Another I have read about is a jungle hideaway, the Hotel Rimbo, into eco-tourism and to the north-west of Bukittinggi, Sumatara, and sounding like a fine destination for the adventurer.
