Orangutan refugee camps can be pretty desperate places, with no shortage of agonising stories of suffering and survival - but also of resilience and hope.

Mr Ian Singleton runs a hillside complex near the Indonesian island of Sumatra where 46 of our closest living relatives live.

Among the orangutans are those who have been seizes from animal traders whose parents have most likely been caught and shot.

If you want to help, you can adopt an orangutan like Chocolate or Harry by visiting www.sumatranorangutan.org

You don't get to keep them but your donation will help keep them alive.
