The job I really want...

Taking the crew to lunch.

Orphaned orangutans saved from extinction in Borneo jungle

At the Nyaru Menteng centre 47 “babysitters” – women recruited from nearby villages in central Borneo - help care for 650 apes as they move through nursery, Forest School One and Forest School Two before hopefully heading out for a new life in the jungle.

The centre was set up 12 years ago by ­Danish conservationist Lone Dröscher-Nielsen who devised the baby-sitter system of giving the traumatised young orphans the ­unconditional love they need to survive.
