Details : Pollyanna is pleased to return to  the Manchester Association for Environmental Studies to present her brand new talk about her most recent expedition into the jungles of Borneo.

Here she journeyed by river boat deep into the rainforests of the Tanjung Puting National Park – one of the world’s only protected areas of tropical jungle. Pollyanna trekked into the forests to visit the rehabilitation centres where many of the orang-utans who have been released back in to the wild visit feeding platforms for meals of milk and bananas. There is nowhere else in the world you can see so many wild orangutans in their natural home – and Pollyanna made the most of this opportunity to fill her sketch folders. The rainforests are also home to tigers, clouded leopards and a wealth of tropical bird life.

Visitors are welcome at a cost of £3 per person, payable on the door. For further details contact John Esson 0161 445 0646
