Auckland Zoo Eco Adventures
We've partnered with the award winning Raw Wildlife Encounters to bring you a Sumatran adventure …
Come along with us on a journey into the heart of Sumatra's Leuser Ecosystem in our four-part series Wild Work Sumatra. You'll see amazing wildlife, meet the forest-edge communities who call Sumatra home, learn about the complex social and environmental challenges they’re facing and the incredible people working to tackle these issues.
Guiding us through this series is Auckland Zoo’s primate team leader Amy Robbins who has dedicated her life to raising awareness for these incredible primates. Amy uses skills learnt caring for our orangutans Charlie, Melur and Wanita at the zoo and her extensive knowledge of primate behaviour, to help conserve their cousins in the wild.
You’ll get to see just how special this place is, and why Amy is so passionate about conserving it. The Leuser Ecosystem is the largest intact forest in Asia and it’s the only place left where Sumatran orangutans, elephants, rhinoceros and tigers co-exist together in the wild.
