Amanda Carroll, a Zookeeper in the Indo-Malaya Area of the Toronto Zoo, joins me on the podcast to discuss the care and conservation of the Sumatran orangutans. During the interview, Amanda talks about the level of care the animals receive at the Zoo and how they rotate the animals on display to mimic how they live in the wild. We also spend some time discussing the Orangutans’ conservation needs in the wild and how we can stop the destruction of their habitats.
