A cute baby orangutan face on a heart shaped sticker for wildlife lovers. This cute little baby is one of the many thousands that have been rescued for over 35 years by Dr. Birute Galdikas and Orangutan Foundation International.

In the early 1970's, Dr. Louise Leakey chose three young women to study the great apes. When Dian Fossey and Jane Goodall were sent to Africa to study gorillas and chimps, Birute Galdikas was sent to the island of Borneo in Southeast Asia for her research on orangutans. All these decades later, she is still actively involved in saving the lives of animals.
