World-renowned orangutan expert and conservationist Dr Ian Singleton visits Auckland for a one-off public talk, 'In Your Hands', at the Bruce Mason Centre on Tuesday 19 August at 7pm.

Dr Singleton is the director of the Sumatran Orangutan Conservation Programme (SOCP), a conservation project Auckland Zoo has supported for over 12 years, and has devoted his life to saving this critically endangered great ape and its forest home.

Active in many orangutan projects, Dr Singleton is also co-founder of Earth 4 Orangutans, which is working to raise funds to establish an Orangutan Haven and Conservation Education Centre in north Sumatra.

All profits from the 19 August talk, supported by Auckland Zoo, will go towards establishing this important new haven and centre.

Don't miss this unique opportunity to hear Dr Singleton share his inspirational journey, the latest news from the field, the pressing issues facing the orangutan and what we can all do to help ensure the survival of this remarkable great ape.

Tickets are $20 per person and can be purchased on-site at Auckland Zoo’s Information Centre.

Please note:
A $3 courier fee applies for tickets purchased by phone.
Entry to Bruce Mason Centre from 6.30pm. Bar will be open for refreshments.
