EXPEDITION TO BATANG TORU
In search of the rarest great apes in the world.
The Sumatran Orangutan Society (SOS) have published a behind the scenes blog post on the adventures the Now Or Never team experienced whilst filming in Batang Toru, as told through the Director’s eyes.
“In June 2018, filmmaker Matt Senior embarked on a journey into Batang Toru, a tropical rainforest in the heart of North Sumatra. He was going in search of the rarest great ape on the planet – the newly identified Tapanuli Orangutans. On a mission to be the first person in the world to produce a documentary on this new species, Matt shadowed the conservationists from the Sumatran Orangutan Conservation Programme (SOCP) as they carried out their vital work to study and protect this critically endangered species and its unique forest home.”
