The Revealed has focused its conservational efforts on gorillas. We spent observing these amazing animals more than four years. We have learned a lot, we made a lot… Now, we give you a chance to discover the life of orang-utans as well! We started The Relatives project.
Orang-utan’s male Elmar, females Zaneta and Satu, and little Besar will be the main heros of a new project of Czech Radio and Zoo Dvur Kralove. Four Bornean orang-utans (Pongo pygmaeus) left their former home, the Old Pavilion built in 1984 and start to domesticate a new modern pavilion where they will be kept in as natural conditions as possible. Four cameras were installed in the pavilion during the construction for The Relatives. You can join project of Czech Radio Online and Zoo Dvur Kralove
Our live webcast will allow users to watch orang-utans, their behaviour and interaction with other members of the troop. The name of the project – The Relatives – reflects all the focus points of the project, i.e. to obtain better knowledge about the relatedness of orang-utans with humans as well as with gorillas whose ethology we studied in the Revealed project.
Learn about the life of orang-utans and support the Revealed project in its effort to help protect western lowland gorillas in Central Africa. Donations to the Revealed fund will be used to finance the print and distribution of a gorilla tales book in Congo-Brazzaville, production of educational materials, and support of rangers in the Dja biosphere reserve.
