Episode 3 - Orangutans
First aired: 5th July 2009
Runtime: 45 min 12 s
Charlotte begins her Bornean adventure with a helicopter flight over the rainforest. By counting the orangutan nests in the treetops, scientists are able to estimate the number of animals left in the wild – and the results are not good.
At an orangutan orphanage in Sabah, northern Borneo, Charlotte meets three seven-year-old animals who are part of a bold experiment. Researchers hope to teach these youngsters the survival skills they should have learned from their mothers so that they might survive if released into the wild.
Charlotte also spends some time looking for Suzanna, the female of the group who has been missing for several days. Suzanna’s disappearance is both good and bad news for the orangutan charity: the fact that she made a bid for freedom shows she has the impulse to live in the wild; but surviving alone in the forest where food is scarce is a risky business.
The next leg of her quest sees Charlotte team up with a photographer friend for a trip up the Kinabatangan river in pursuit of an elusive wild adult male orangutan. With the help of an in-depth knowledge of the fruiting cycles of various trees, a keen-eyed guide and some hi-tech audio equipment, it is not long before Charlotte and the team are on the trail of the king of the Bornean jungle.
