Photo by Frans Lanting @franslanting | I’m sharing this image of a young orangutan in recognition of World Orangutan Day. He has reason to look distraught. Nearly half of all orangutans—a staggering 150,000, in all—vanished from Borneo in the past 15 years, due to destruction of their forest habitat and the impact of he wild pet trade. This orphaned young male was rescued and brought to a rehab center, but he won’t have much of a future unless we protect the forests all orangutans depend on for their survival. I welcome you to support the organizations that are on the front lines of helping orangutans, with public activities as well as covert operations aimed at busting wildlife criminals. @World_Wildlife and @WildAid need your help. And follow me @FransLanting for more encounters with endangered animals around the world.

A staff member at the Borneo Orangutan Survival Foundation wheels orphaned orangutans in a wheelbarrow. "The orphans spend several hours every day attending forest school where they learn the skills necessary to be either returned or introduced into the Bornean forest," explains #YourShotPhotographer Mark Edward Harris. This photo was selected for the August 16, 2019 edition of our Photos of the Week series.

“I couldn’t do that!” — a common response to images of imposing mountain ranges from the treks we’ve done (like the Huayhuash trek pictured here). The implication is that serious mountaineering chops, youth — or both — are somehow the secret.⁠.⁠

Not so. Outside of some preparation, the real secret in most cases is perseverance. One foot in front of the other, slow and steady up and over each mountain pass day after day. In fact, one guy in our group was 74-years-old and had both knees replaced just a couple years prior to the walk. He inspired us as he ascended each and every pass. Not only was his perseverance notable, his gratitude was also. The childlike wonder he expressed in response to all that he encountered along the trail was infectious. ⁠.⁠

For us, the best antidote or answer to dispel the myths and doubts regarding what we can and cannot carry ourselves to do: the everyday people we encounter on our travels.⁠.⁠

While the 10-day Huayhuash trek is physically challenging and takes you to some high altitudes (5,050 m/16,570 feet at the highest point), there’s nothing technical about it.⁠ Our Huayhuash Trekking Guide (link in bio) explains it all..⁠
