Dr. Willie Smits is one of the world’s greatest conservationists.  He’s personally responsible for rescuing hundreds of orangutans and other animals in Indonesia.  The founder of Borneo Orangutan Sanctuary (BOS) and other major rescue and rehabilitation centres, takes us on a close up journey into an orangutan rescue in this rare video clip.
