Smile and the world smiles with you

Ian Wood is a writer and photographer who specialises in nature, travel and wildlife.  He also supports our work through his Orangutan Photographic Trips.  Below is an excerpt from his blog, which will put a smile on your face.  Visit,  Ian’s blog, to read his reports on his trips to Borneo in 2012 and take at look at some of his stunning photography.

‘Exchanging eye contact with any great ape imbues a deep sense of connection … so when this mother and baby orangutan gazed into my eyes it was already a special moment. But then something else happened … they both started displaying emotions which looked like laughter. So here’s the question … are they smiling and laughing ? Or am I merely observing them from my limited perception of being human ? @IanWoodPhotos’

A big thank you to Ian and to all who joined one of Ian’s trips in 2012 for supporting our work.

Thank you,

Orangutan Foundation
