Orangutans at NADWCon

Updated: June 14, 2011

As many of you know, our NADWCon Discworld auction benefits two charities very close to Terry's heart: The Orangutan Foundation and the Alzeheimer's Research Trust.  The Discworld Librarian has many fans.  Knowing this, we've scheduled a special Morpork Mob event, an Orangutan Talk at the Henry Vilas Zoo: 

Meet the Librarian - A Trip to the Henry Vilas Zoo
We’ve arranged for a  special presentation for our attendees on Orangutans to be held at the Zoo.The hotel will bus 24 people to the zoo. Sign up sheets are at the desk. We encourage others who would like to go to drive there (It is 5 to 10 minute drive from the con hotel). The zoo is free.

Sign Up Sheets required for Bus. First come, first served. 

Time & Day To Be Announced  
Mely's Story

Here is a story about Mely, an rescued Orangutan. After being chained up for 15 years she finally got a friend, and her happy ending.
She hadn't felt the touch of another orangutan since the day her mother was cruelly snatched from her more than 15 years ago.  So when Mely — the orangutan rescued thanks to the generosity of Daily Mail readers after a lifetime in  shackles — met fellow orphan Nicky there was plenty of catching up to do. They stared at each other with inquisitive brown eyes before reaching out for a hug.
