Orangutan odyssey by Biruté Marija Filomena Galdikas( Book )

11 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 692 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Orangutans, the fabled red apes of the forests of Indonesia, share 97 percent of the biological makeup of human beings. But it is not for this reason alone that they have captured the interest and attention of scientists and naturalists. They are remarkable animals in their own right, living solitary and peaceful lives in the tree canopy of the dense tropical rain forest of the Indonesian islands of Borneo and Sumatra. Subsisting on fruit, leaves, and other vegetation, they interact very little with other animals and pose a threat to none. But their own existence is now endangered by poaching, forest cutting, and gold mining, which are reducing at a great rate the pristine forest areas that orangutans require to live." "Now, for the first time, Birute Galdikas, the world's leading authority on orangutans, offers a rich picture of their life based on her intimate observation of hundreds of the animals in their native habitat; she spends as much as six months every year in her research camp at the edge of Tanjung Puting National Park near Kalimantan, Borneo. She has succeeded not only in rescuing several hundred wild-born orangutans previously held as pets or in substandard zoos, but also in studying the life cycles and behavior of both wild and semiwild animals, with particular attention to mothers and their young. The results of her knowledge inform the text of this remarkable book."--Jacket
Great ape odyssey by Biruté Marija Filomena Galdikas( Book )

5 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 619 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Overview: Early in her career in the late 1960s, Birute Galdikas was handpicked, along with Jane Goodall and the late Dian Fossey, by the renowned paleontologist Louis Leakey to go out into the world and study the great apes. She went on to dedicate her life to observing orangutans in their natural habitat and has become one of the world's leading authorities on orangutans. "I had reached the point where it was hard for me to see the differences between apes and humans," Galdikas once admitted on a 48 Hours television special. Here the famed primatologist and author of Orangutan Odyssey explores each of the great apes (gorillas, chimpanzees-including bonobos-and orangutans), interpreting the latest research and describing relationships among the different species-all in the context of the mounting threat of extinction. The 125 up-close images by internationally renowned wildlife photographer Karl Ammann illustrate the behaviors of these intriguing, humanlike animals. The result is a compelling overview of what we have learned about these fascinating creatures and, in turn, what they can teach us about ourselves

The neglected ape by Biruté Marija Filomena Galdikas( )

2 editions published between 1995 and 2013 in English and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The orangutan is the most highly endangered species of great ape. Orangutans are threatened by deforestation, poaching, the illegal pet trade, and the isolation and fragmenƯ tation of dwindling wild populations. Their conservation is impeded by certain aspects of their ecology (e. g., a rain forest habitat) and certain features of their life history (e. g., an eight-to twelve-year interbirth interval). Added to the U.S. Endangered Species List in 1970, the orangutan is now clearly on the road to extinction. The number of wild orangutans in Borneo and Sumatra is currently estimated to have decreased to between 12,300 and 20,571 individuals. Only 2% of original orangutan habitat is protected and some of these areas are now being destroyed. Clearly, attention to ecology, demography, censusing, rehabilitation, and conservation is essential if the orangutan is to survive in the wild beyond the next century. The protection of orangutans is a complex, multifaceted problem, involving such pressing issues as human poverty, overpopulation, and the economic development of Southeast Asia. Although the orangutan has been placed in Appendix I of the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES), more orangutans were sold illegally in Taiwan between 1990 and 1993 than are housed in all the world's zoos. In the past, scientific and public attention has centered on the African apes. For this reason, the sole Asian great ape, the orangutan, has been called the "neglected ape
