Channel 4’s latest observational nature documentary series follows the lives and stories of the orangutans and the staff at the world’s biggest orangutan rehabilitation centre.
It’s a momentous occasion for the centre this week as the world’s first and only reported albino orangutan arrives. Elsewhere, since being reunited with each other last week, teenage mum Clara and her child Clarita seem all set to return to their natural island habitat. ‘Class Clown’ Valentino is busy showing off, and the staff decide that ‘Big Boy’ Beni needs to lose weight while some worrying signs in the older orangutans show that some may not be ready to return to wild.
Orangutan Jungle School – Wednesday 8:00pm on Channel 4.
