When Wildlife Wong is far away from home, in a country called Taiwan, he looks after a sad rescued orangutan called Polly. She has been stolen from her mother and kept as a pet.
He vows to help save wildlife and, when he moves to Polly’s true home of Borneo, he comes face-to-face with her wild relatives. Some are angry, some are naughty, and some are nice.
What will Wong do when a playful orangutan locks him in his office? Find out inside. Then, after the story, learn interesting facts about orangutans and their rainforest home. Conduct experiments and become a scientist just like Wildlife Wong!
""This book is great for readers who are interested in wildlife and conservation. It tells the story of Wong and his love for unusual animals. I especially love how he has worked to save orangutans from captivity. I also learnt lots of nature facts. 5 out of 5!!!”

Dr. Sarah Pye is the author of the Wildlife Wong series of children's' books. She is also the author of Saving Sun Bears, the biography of Malaysian ecologist Dr. Wong Siew Te.
It's a sad fact, but unless kids get onboard, sun bears are likely to become extinct. Sarah wrote Wildlife Wong and the Sun Bear to spread the word about this incredible species to a younger audience. But it is not only sun bears that need attention.
Eventually, the Wildlife Wong series will have nine books focusing on nine species, and highlighting the importance of the environment.
Sarah is often invited to schools to conduct presentations and workshops either in person or online. If you are interested in having her come to your school, send her an email!
