"Hang Out" for Orangutans

"Hang Out" for Orangutans

Join us as Gary Shapiro and Leif Cocks give a once-in-a-lifetime speaking tour at Audubon Zoo. This is your opportunity to "hang out" with two world renowned orangutan experts and learn more about the most intelligent animal on the planet.

The orangutan species faces extinction due to rapidly expanding palm oil plantations and habitat loss in Borneo and Sumatra, South East Asia. Hang Out for Orangutans is a world tour to raise global awareness and become more informed about the dire situation orangutans are facing and what we as consumers can do about it.

Gary Shapiro
Gary is the co-founder and President of the Orang Utan Republik Foundation and began his involvement with orangutans 40 years ago in the field of primate cognition and learning. He was the first person (1973-1975) to teach a symbolic communication system to an orangutan and the first person to have taught sign language to orangutans in the species’ natural environment (1978-1980; 1981). Gary has assisted in the rehabilitation efforts of dozens of orangutans confiscated from the illegal pet trade and monitored the phenology of local rain forest ecosystem.

Leif Cocks
Leif is the founder of The Orangutan Project and has been the President since its inception. He has worked for over 25 years as a zoo curator managing a wide range of animals, including the most successful colony of orangutans in the world. Leif has enormous field experience in protecting rainforest, rescuing and releasing orangutans, including the first two ever captive-born orangutans successfully rehabilitated and released.

Special Guest Garry Sundin from Orangutan Odysseys will also be there to talk about adventure ecotourism and the exciting Trans Borneo Challenge. Orangutan Odysseys combines adventure and educational tours in Indonesia and parts of Malaysia to support conservation efforts for the survival of orangutans and the protection of their habitat.

Join us as Gary Shapiro and Leif Cocks give a once-in-a-lifetime speaking tour at Audubon Zoo. This is your opportunity to "hang out" with two world renowned orangutan experts and learn more about the most intelligent animal on the planet.

The orangutan species faces extinction due to rapidly expanding palm oil plantations and habitat loss in Borneo and Sumatra, South East Asia. Hang Out for Orangutans is a world tour to raise global awareness and become more informed about the dire situation orangutans are facing and what we as consumers can do about it.

Hang Out for Orangutans: New Orleans, LA


Saturday, June 15, 2013
 6:00 pm—Cash Bar Reception
7:00 pm—Presentation
8:00 pm—Cash Bar and Silent Auction

Audubon Zoo Dominion Auditorium

6500 Magazine St, New Orleans, LA 70118


Contact: Brenda WalkenhorstEmail or (504) 212-5472

All proceeds support orangutan conservation.

Gary Shapiro
Gary is the co-founder and President of the Orang Utan Republik Foundation and began his involvement with orangutans 40 years ago in the field of primate cognition and learning. He was the first person (1973-1975) to teach a symbolic communication system to an orangutan and the first person to have taught sign language to orangutans in the species’ natural environment (1978-1980; 1981). Gary has assisted in the rehabilitation efforts of dozens of orangutans confiscated from the illegal pet trade and monitored the phenology of local rain forest ecosystem.

Leif Cocks
Leif is the founder of The Orangutan Project and has been the President since its inception. He has worked for over 25 years as a zoo curator managing a wide range of animals, including the most successful colony of orangutans in the world. Leif has enormous field experience in protecting rainforest, rescuing and releasing orangutans, including the first two ever captive-born orangutans successfully rehabilitated and released.

Special Guest Garry Sundin from Orangutan Odysseys will also be there to talk about adventure ecotourism and the exciting Trans Borneo Challenge. Orangutan Odysseys combines adventure and educational tours in Indonesia and parts of Malaysia to support conservation efforts for the survival of orangutans and the protection of their habitat.

Join us as Gary Shapiro and Leif Cocks give a once-in-a-lifetime speaking tour at Audubon Zoo. This is your opportunity to "hang out" with two world renowned orangutan experts and learn more about the most intelligent animal on the planet.

The orangutan species faces extinction due to rapidly expanding palm oil plantations and habitat loss in Borneo and Sumatra, South East Asia. Hang Out for Orangutans is a world tour to raise global awareness and become more informed about the dire situation orangutans are facing and what we as consumers can do about it.

All proceeds support orangutan conservation.

Gary Shapiro
Gary is the co-founder and President of the Orang Utan Republik Foundation and began his involvement with orangutans 40 years ago in the field of primate cognition and learning. He was the first person (1973-1975) to teach a symbolic communication system to an orangutan and the first person to have taught sign language to orangutans in the species’ natural environment (1978-1980; 1981). Gary has assisted in the rehabilitation efforts of dozens of orangutans confiscated from the illegal pet trade and monitored the phenology of local rain forest ecosystem.

Leif Cocks
Leif is the founder of The Orangutan Project and has been the President since its inception. He has worked for over 25 years as a zoo curator managing a wide range of animals, including the most successful colony of orangutans in the world. Leif has enormous field experience in protecting rainforest, rescuing and releasing orangutans, including the first two ever captive-born orangutans successfully rehabilitated and released.

Special Guest Garry Sundin from Orangutan Odysseys will also be there to talk about adventure ecotourism and the exciting Trans Borneo Challenge. Orangutan Odysseys combines adventure and educational tours in Indonesia and parts of Malaysia to support conservation efforts for the survival of orangutans and the protection of their habitat.
