Jungle School: Snake awareness
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 series has been made by Dunedin’s NHNZ and will screen on Choice TV from January 10 at 7.30pm.
The producers have provided Newsroom with some short videos that give a fascinating insight into the world of these endangered orangutans.
Borneo is home to around 160 snake species – many of which are venomous and pose a threat to Orangutans. Since fear of snakes is learned, snake awareness is an important lesson that all students must attend at the Orangutan Jungle School – and it’s a lesson they will never forget!
This particular “snake school” takes place with a mixed group of three to five year olds.
