Orangutan Orphanage is the second in the 4-book Wildlife Rescue series. Each book introduces a species of animal in danger somewhere in the world and profiles a rescue center that helps them. Stunning photos by award-winning wildlife photographer Suzi Eszterhas give readers a rare view of these adorable animals and the high level of care they receive.

Orangutan Orphanage invites readers inside the Orangutan Care Center and Quarantine, operated by Orangutan Foundation International, in the South Pacific jungles of Borneo. It explores why baby orangutans become orphaned and the process of healing and rehabilitating them for return to the wild. It also highlights the people who work at the rescue center and how they aid the animals.

Other special features include a map showing the orangutan's native habitat range and an index, glossary, sources, and author Q&A based on common questions from kids. An author's note at the end introduces readers to small-scale ways in which even they can help save orangutans.

A portion of the royalties from this book will be donated to the Orangutan Care Center and Quarantine in Borneo.
