Ben Fogle’s Heart 2 Heart experience with orphaned orangutans

| Estimated reading time: 2 minutes
Join adventurer and explorer Ben Fogle as he visits orangutans at the Matang Wildlife Centre in Sarawak, Malaysian Borneo. Matang is located close to Sarawak’s capital city, Kuching, and is “one of the most beautiful rainforest regions on the planet” according to Ben. It is fascinating to watch Ben being taught how to look after young orangutans – the Centre has a tiered system of teaching the orangutans the skills they need to live back in the wild, one day at a time.  The Heart To Heart Foundation runs several different eco-tourism programmes which involve members of the public and our film shows Ben helping feed the orangutans.  At the end of his visit, Ben receives his certificate and T-shirt for all his efforts.  Visiting Matang is definitely a “must do” activity when visiting Sarawak.
