Monkey Business with Leif Cocks

Wednesday 6th November / presented by Taylah Strano

Founder of the Orangutan Project, Leif Cocks joined Breakfast with Taylah to talk about what he's learnt about humanity from 3 decades studying orangutans.

The Orangutan Project aims to negotiate safe habitats and saving ecosystems for organgutans and other species to survive. With 80% of the forest already gone and about 80% of orangutans trying to survive in degraded habitat outside of protected areas, things are looking dire for the animals survival if we don't make some changes within the next 10 years.

Just after the release of his third book based on his learning over the years, Leif joined Breakfast with Taylah to chat all about his work in conservation.

Leif Cocks will be talking at the Quantum Words Festival on Friday and Saturday at the State Theatre Centre.
