Registered Roots students are invited to a National Geographic Live presentation of Adventures Among the Orangutans with photographer Tim Laman & anthropologist Cheryl Knott.
Biological anthropologist Cheryl Knott and wildlife photojournalist Tim Laman have been using innovative techniques and new technologies to gain a closer look at one of the most iconic, yet least understood of the world’s primates, the Orangutan. Get a glimpse into the secret world of these intelligent, unique, and resourceful primates through the eyes of two experts who have dedicated their life’s work to studying, protecting, and sharing their love of these amazing animals.
