An evening with leading conservationist Dr Ian Singleton, Director of the Sumatran Orangutan Conservation Programme (SOCP), sharing fascinating insights from almost 20 years working on the frontline of orangutan and forest protection.

Join us to hear from Dr Singleton about why there is hope for Sumatran orangutans and their rainforest home, and learn what we can do to save the precious Leuser Ecosystem, the only place in the world where orangutans, tigers, elephants and rhinos co-exist under the same forest canopy.

The talk will be illustrated by stunning photography and film.

Suggested donation: £12

This event has been organised by the Sumatran Orangutan Society and the Ape Alliance. Your ticket donation will be split equally between SOCP and Ape Alliance.
