Alan Knight Interview - CEO of International Animal Rescue

Alan Knight Interview - CEO of International Animal Rescue

Posted by Sam Hopkins on 23rd Jan 2015

We're always thrilled to receive news and updates from our old volunteers, and this week we were thrilled to receive a video from Michelle Cullen - an ex-volunteer who joined both the 'IAR Orangutan Project' and the 'Great Orangutan Project'.

In it she interviews Alan Knight, the CEO of 'International Animal Rescue', who talks about the developments taking place at Ketapang (the site of the 'IAR Orangutan Project').

Alan also talks about the importance of volunteering with orangutans - and we couldn't agree more! To watch the video and see the interview (as well as some fantastic footage of orangutans), please click here.

If you would like to join this incredible project yourself and work with the IAR team, please don't hesitate to contact us via our website, via email ([email protected]) or telephone (+44(0)20 885 4987).

Have a great weekend - TGP Team.
