Orang-utans and reintroductions
Finished writing my few words for the upcoming Great Ape Debate on Thursday. This meeting is going extremely well, with a huge amount of interest. An article in last Sunday's Observer gave it a lot of publicity -- though the head line was unfortunately extremely misleading, implying that there was a major feud among conservationists. The truth is very different, as I hope will emerge on Thursday. All the tests have been carried out for the live streaming of the debate, and a national newspaper has asked if they can embed it in their website too.
