Three members of the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo staff left last weekend for a three week visit to Borneo and Sumatra, the remaining spots on the planet to find wild orangutans. The fact-finding trip will seek solutions to the major threats facing orangutans.
Zoo Vice President Tracey Gazibara, Animal Care Manager Dina Bredahl and Primate Keeper Mandy Hollingsworth will also work at building a media library of the sights and sounds of the areas.
The trio is sending communiqués back to Cheyenne Mountain Zoo through emails, blog entries, video, still photography and other social media formats as time and location permit.
