    ... don't mean any harm by it, and are simply doing it as they might get a treat in return for letting go of what they have. But given how massive and strong they are, it is always treated seriously. Three weeks ago, a caretaker that routinely handles and works with the orangutans in another related facility in
    Indonesia had his finger bitten off by the same orangutan he works with daily. They had to fly him ...

    ... steel bars -- all current on our tetanus shots, so no worries about that. But, we got a good physical workout -- lifting, carrying, and drenched from the sweat again.

Haley's connected well with Jenna, an 18 yr old from ...

Other than the compulsory boat ride in, Bako was a lot closer to civilisation and therefore generally better travelled than the more remote Mulu. But it was also a very different kind of park, located on the coast with light jungle and several seastacks offshore. Besides the ...
