Jungle School: Beni conquers banana mountain
Orangutan Jungle School is a documentary series about a unique forest school in Borneo that prepares hundreds of young orphaned orangutans for a life in the wild.
The producers have provided Newsroom with some short videos that give a fascinating insight into the world of these endangered orangutans.
In this episode big-boy Beni is still craving food he’s not allowed. As well as his low fat milk diet, he has a potassium issue which means no bananas. But hungry Beni ditches class and sneaks off on his own to discover orangutan heaven – a giant banana mountain!
The series has been made by Dunedin’s NHNZ and will screen on Choice TV from January 10 at 7.30pm.
