…. Sumatran Orangutans (P. abelii) are critically endangered due to vast areas of their forest habitat being destroyed for conversion to oil palm plantation. Some UN scientists believe this could lead to the extinction of the species by 2012. The word orangutan is derived from the Melay and Indonesian words orang meaning “man” and hutan meaning “forest” thus “Person of the forest”. photographed at Adelaide Zoological Gardens, South Australia.

Now retired, I have found the time to take my cameras and equipment to some fascinating places …in Australia, and countries around the world including Canada, Alaska, Zambia, Zimbabwe, South Africa Kenya and Zanzibar.
I mainly shoot landscapes , animals (domestic and wild) flora and fauna and anything to do with nature … I am owned by a wife and two cats and I’m a citizen of Adelaide, the capital city of South Australia …thanks for stopping by.
