Hi everyone, thanks for joining the website.

I have had such a massive week, firstly I was recording the book for two days straight, unbelievably draining. The standing as well as the concentration, something I’d rather not do as a profession, but as an experience it was wonderful. It was actually quite surreal when reading it out loud, I was thinking ‘did I actually write this?’ So that was good.
More news this week, I sent a copy of the book to Kobe Steele, president of Orangutan foundation international, who so far has loved the story.
But during a chat she revealed just how hard it was for these animals, how human like they are and what it takes to look after them.
Interestingly she told me of her trips to the shelter, with Berocca being the largest quantity of product she takes in. I asked why and she revealed that Berocca is the easiest and quickest way to treat and save an infant orangutan. Kobe went on to tell me that when they are so little they are completely malnourished and that feeding them this bottled vitamin boost, quickly gets them to a healthier place. But funnily, she told me the older ‘children’ prefer the gumi bear type vitamins and happily munch on those through the day. Who would have thought?
Luckily, after several years of only being able to purchase it Berocca now supply it free to the foundation, GO BEROCCA!
Anyway I will sign off there, and thank you for being part of this journey. I look forward to learning and sharing more with you about these animals that are 98.5% us.
