Kindergarden projects

We take preschool children on an adventure tour around the world. Our orangutan hand puppet Ginting helps them discover the great apes and their natural habitats. We also discuss endangerment of the great apes. Zoo excursions allow the young adventurers to apply their newly-acquired knowledge.
