"I was in Tanjung Putting National Park, Indonesia looking to photograph wild orangutans for a book project. One morning, I was taking to a local ranger and he mentioned he had seen a male orangutan crossing the Sekoyner River about 50 miles away a few months ago. We went there hoping to see this male and after waiting for 3 days he finally showed up and crossed the river.

It was a special natural history moment for me. Deforestation of these beautiful rainforest for palm oil farms has had a huge negative impact on these red apes; they hate water and there is no reason for them to venture into a crocodile infested water. I am not a scientist, but to me it looks like they are doing their best to adapt to the changing landscape of these once pristine rain forests."
