Orangutan Jungle School (Season #1) will be coming to audiences all over the world from NHNZ, the producers of the hugely popular Orangutan Island (2009-11).
The 10 episode series will take viewers on the adventures, trials and tribulations, heartaches, fun, friends, failures and successes of all the orangutans who attend the BOS Foundation's unique school in a Borneo jungle in Central Kalimantan Indonesia. They are all orphans and are learning skills that one day will enable them to live once again in a true wilderness.
With their rainforest habitat being destroyed by deforestation at an alarming rate there are currently over 300 students going through the school system. The stakes are super high for all these orangutans with traumatic pasts.
Dunedin based Songbroker artist Scott Mason has composed a whimsical and heartfelt musical backdrop to the series, which will be airing in NZ on Choice TV sometime in the Spring.
