Come For The Adorable Orangutans. Stay Because There Is Something You Should Know About Them.

Alana Karsch

Usually GoPro videos are of some extreme sport like cliff-diving and my fear of heights goes into overdrive. This one is a little different. OK, a lot different. There are some heights involved, but only when the orangutans climb trees, which is really cool to watch.

Even though there's lots of furry and adorable happening in this vid, there's also something goin' on in orangutanville that is far from cute. In fact, it makes me really, really angry. Dang. It's hard to type when my hands turn into fists like this.


This puppy was made by the fine folks at GoPro, who have a history of caring about important causes. They're basically rad.
