Orangutans have long been one of my favorite animals. When I was asked by friends with AZA's SAFE Orangutan team to help with a fundraiser, I was in immediately.
The night was a huge success (after some pesky technical glitches). We managed to raise $1,750 for orangutan conservation, and taught loads of people along the way.

A huge thank you to everyone involved, especially Dr. Louis DiVencenti with the Seneca Park Zoo and Rhonda Schwetz with Henry Vilas Zoo for joining our live conversation.
