9781771471411: Orangutan Orphanage (Wildlife Rescue)

Orangutan Orphanage is the second in the 4-book Wildlife Rescue series. Each book introduces a species of animal in danger somewhere in the world and profiles a rescue center that helps them. Stunning photos by award-winning wildlife photographer Suzi Eszterhas give readers a rare view of these adorable animals and the high level of care they receive.

Orangutan Orphanage invites readers inside the Orangutan Care Center and Quarantine, operated by Orangutan Foundation International, in the South Pacific jungles of Borneo. It explores why baby orangutans become orphaned and the process of healing and rehabilitating them for return to the wild. It also highlights the people who work at the rescue center and how they aid the animals.

Other special features include a map showing the orangutan’s native habitat range and an index, glossary, sources, and author Q&A based on common questions from kids. An author’s note at the end introduces readers to small-scale ways in which even they can help save orangutans.

A portion of the royalties from this book will be donated to the Orangutan Care Center and Quarantine in Borneo.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 2-5-Animal lovers will welcome this overview of the work being done by Orangutan Foundation International's Orangutan Care Center and Quarantine in Borneo. Author and photographer Eszterhas satisfyingly documents this facility's efforts to care for and return rescued orphan orangutans to a safe natural environment. Specially trained volunteers (mostly comprised of women) from the neighboring village of Pasir Panjang tend to the young apes, nurturing the animals until they are ready to live on their own. As Eszterhas documents this special bonding process, readers will learn about the orangutan's diet, behaviors, and characteristics. Material is organized into short, readable sections identified with helpful headings. Eszterhas attributes emotions to the creatures; for example, "When the babies arrive, they are frightened and sad, and they miss their mothers so much that they cry at night." Excellent, crisp, and well-composed full-color photographs fill the work and are the highlight of this book. Varying in size, the images capture the personalities of the orangutans, showcase the animals' behaviors, and illustrate how their human keepers interact with the animals. There are many wonderful close-ups, such as a baby orangutan sitting on a scale with a stuffed toy and another of a young orangutan at bath time. Not all pictures are captioned. Back matter includes a section where Eszterhas answers common questions. VERDICT This selection offers a fine and valuable look at how humans can preserve and protect wildlife and will do well elementary school libraries.-Lynn Vanca, Freelance Librarian, Akron, OHα(c) Copyright 2011.
