Listen up! Really, to this radio story about orangutans and their unique behaviors on the Voice of America network. Dr. Rob Shumaker, the Indianapolis Zoo's Vice President of Life Sciences and one of the world's foremost experts on orangutans, was interviewed by reporter Rebecca Widiss for this story and offers his insights into what the Zoo is trying to accomplish with its new International Orangutan Center (IOC). Orangutans are considered one of the most intelligent creatures on Earth. They are one of the few animals that can recognize its own reflection in a mirror, and they are known as innovative tool users, including using large leaves as umbrellas! When the IOC opens in May 2014, it will include some new and fun interactive elements, including one where orangutans and humans will need to cooperate on a computer screen recognition process in order to achieve the goal. Check out what Dr. Shumaker has to say about that activity, and more, during this fascinating interview. FYI, that's Rob in the photo to the right workiing with his old friend, Azy the orangutan, in a special language project at the National Zoo several years ago.
