Gary Shapiro
While I studied academically to be a zoologist, I became interested in comparative psychology and studied orangutan and chimpanzee linguistic competence in the 1970s. Field work in Indonesian Borneo let to a commitment to the survival of the orangutan and the species within the forest ecosystem. I co-founded the Orangutan Foundation in 1986 and the Orang Utan Republik Education Initiative (now Foundation) in 2004.
