The Indonesian island of Sumatra is the only place in the world where elephants, orangutans, tigers and rhinos still live in the wild together. This free outdoor photographic exhibition hopes to highlight the threats that this habitat faces and what is being done to safeguard the island's unique species. 24 Photographs by top international wildlife photographers will be displayed on large 2-meter wide panels. A range of hands-on activities, meet-the-photographer events and talks will accompany the exhibition, which is organised by the Sumatran orangutan Society in association with The Forest Trust.
