These orangutans are located in the Camp Leakey research facility in Central Borneo, where they are observed by researchers who aim to return them to the wild

Though the orangutans are untrained, they are watching us and learning, just as much as we are watching them and learning

So much so, that when they are "simply free to do what orangutans do," the apes might just get in a boat and start rowing

Yes, they row boats
