      Nat Geo Live Speaker Series — Adventures Among Orangutans

      Husband-and-wife duo Tim Laman and Cheryl Knott have dedicated their lives to understanding and protecting orangutans, a threatened species that can only be observed a handful of places around the world. Together, biological anthropologist Knott and photojournalist Laman have combined innovative new techniques with traditional fieldwork to get a closer look at these incredible animals. In this presentation, the pair gives insight into the work that they’ve done with this intelligent, resourceful, and endangered species with whom we share 97% of our DNA, giving us knowledge not only about the animals’ world, but also our own.
