Condition: Very Good in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper a little tanned, more so at the spine. Upper board very slightly sprung. Text complete, clean and tight but slightly musty.
Illustrated with colour photographs. From the cover: Orang Utan concerns the work of two young Swiss Scientists, Monica Borner and Regina Frey, in the jungles of Sumatra where they built and ran a rehabilitation station for orphaned Orang Utans. Orangs are not only one of the most attractive animals on earth, they are also one of the most endangered. So the work of the centre, which Monica Borner and Bernard Stonehouse depict with such love and humour, was vital. Every captive organ that could be taught to live wild again to be released into the rain forest, counts in the battle to save these appealing and intelligent apes from extinction.
