It seems that we are not the only ones that love their iPad, because the staff at Miami’s Jungle Island have been using iPads and so have a couple of eight year old orangutans! They play games and draw, all in an attempt to help them learn more, which clearly they are doing!
According to the scientist and conservationist, Birute Mary Galdikas, who is the founder of Orangutan Foundation International;
“Anything that Jungle Island can do to help their orangutans while away the day is to be commended. IPads seem to work for humans. It’s not surprising that orangutans, who share 97 percent of their genetic material with humans, like them, too.”
