AMONG THE GREAT APES WITH MICHELLE YEOH
Join Michelle Yeoh – star of “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon” – on a very personal journey back home to Malaysia and into the world of the orangutan. Orangutans – whose name means “persons of the forest’ are among the planet’s most endangered primates, and they are the only great ape found in Asia. Once ranging from China to Java, now orangutans survive only on the islands of Sumatra and Borneo. But as Michelle finds out during her visit to Sabah on the island of Borneo, many people – from local Malaysians to international conservationists - devote their lives to the battle to save orangutans from extinction. But are they winning?
