As a young scientist, Biruté Mary Galdikas had a mission: To find and study the elusive orangutans of Borneo’s rain forest to help protect this amazing elusive species.

Like primatologists Jane Goodall and Dian Fossey, Galdikas was driven by incredible ambition and a fascination with apes and human origins, making her way to the harsh rain forests of Indonesian Borneo when she was just 25 years old.

Award-winning author Anita Silvey explores the life and legacy of Dr. Galdikas. With unparalleled storytelling, Silvey offers unique insight into her childhood, her work with National Geographic, her passion of raising awareness about conservation, and her mission of securing a future for orangutans.
