Orangutans: Children of the Forest
- Genre: Special Interest-Nature
- Release Date: 6/11/2013
Didi is a seven-year-old living with her family in a high-rise apartment building in Taipei. Like others her age, she likes it here, but there's a hitch: Didi is an orangutan. Illegally smuggled into Taiwan as an infant, Didi is like thousands of orangutans sold as luxury pets, only luckier. Snatched as babies from the forests of Indonesia, many of these wild beasts perish outside their native surroundings. But with the help of Dr. Willie Smits, an official of the Indonesian Forestry Department, perhaps this cruel practice will stop. Didi's touching personal story is an amazing journey from the comfort of civilization back to her native home in the trees of Indonesia. This remarkable, emotional tale is a heart-tugging adventure of one animal's struggle to become wild again.
