BBC Discover Wildlife-Sumatran Orangutans

Filed in In the Press on Jan.02, 2013

It’s always lovely to see your own work published but in this case it’s even more wonderful. I am proud as ever to see these Sumatran Orangutans I spent time with pride of place on the BBC Wildlife website. This coverage is helping these peaceful animals reach a wider worldwide audience and highlight their plight which was the whole aim of my 2 week trip to Sumatra.

A selection of my photographs have been chosen to form part of the online gallery of the highly prestigious and respected BBC Wildlife magazine; Discover Wildlife. It’s the second time now that my images have been chosen for the Discover Wildlife website. By clicking here you can view the first set of images I had published. With coverage in the January issue of BBC Wildlife magazine and now the online website it’s wonderful that the Sumatran Orangutans plight is being seen and viewed by a much wider audience.

Many thanks once again to Sophie Stafford, editor of the BBC Wildlife magazine for selecting these images for the online gallery, and to Jo for your help. I cannot wait to get back out there this year and thank you to everyone for your help in getting the message out there about these Sumatran Orangutans and whats happening to their forest homes.

Some of my Sumatran Orangutan images can now be purchased, with 100% of the proceeds of each sale going to the Sumatran Orangutan Society-SOS, click here to view them.

    Greetings Craig-
    Such outstanding shots of one of my favorite animals! As Education Chair & Volunteer Coordinator of the Orang Utan Republik Foundation, I find your images very captivating. Thank you for sharing them w/the world, which needs to know why orangutans are in big trouble – and I believe, obligated to protecting them.
