This lesson is designed as a follow-up to reading the story “How to Babysit and Orangutan” by Kathy Darling. The story is about a refuge for orphaned orangutans, and the video talks about a previously undiscovered wild population of orangutans in Borneo, which is an unusual peace of positive news in the discussion of endangered species.
