Event Details

Birutė GaldikasCurious Orange? is a live presentation by primatologist, conservationist, and ethologist Birutė Galdikas.

In this talk Galdikas will transport you to the lush rainforests of Borneo to discover the endangered orangutans of Borneo. She’ll share personal stories from her four decades in the jungle studying and working closely with orangutans.

You’ll begin to understand the remarkable bond between humans and the endangered orangutan, gentlest of all the great apes. She’ll speak of love, dedication, and her hope for the survival of the species.

Birutė Galdikas

Biruté Mary Galdikas has been working in Central Kalimantan (Indonesian Borneo), studying and protecting wild orangutans and forest since 1971. She also established the first orangutan rehabilitation and release program in Kalimantan.

Galdikas is often referred to as the third in the trio of primatologists called "The Trimates", along with Jane Goodall and the late Dian Fossey, who were all mentored and encouraged by the late Louis Leakey.

Galdikas -- a professor in the archaeology department at Simon Fraser University -- is specifically concerned with wild orangutan behavior, the development of orangutan conservation programs, and the re-introduction of captured individuals into the wild.
