Beast Relief

One Special Orangutan: The Story of Budi

Budi, a young orangutan in Borneo, Indonesia, tells the story of his rescue from rainforest destruction, his species' fight for survival, and what children can do to help save orangutans. Fifth graders at the P.S. 107 John W. Kimball Learning Center, an elementary school in Park Slope, Brooklyn, wrote and illustrated this inspiring story, the third in a series about endangered animals. The year-long project was a collaboration between the P.S. 107 Beast Relief commies about endangered animals. The year-long project was a collaboration between the P.S. 107 Beast Relief committee, International Animal Rescue and the Arcus Foundation. All proceeds from sale of the book will go directly to International Animal Rescue for the care, rehabilitation and release back into the wild of Budi and orangutans like him. read more
