For those contemplating the recording of remaining orangs in Borneo
or Sumatra, a word of caution, especially those of a distaff
persuasion. We were warned while working on site a few years back
that there were several instances of female researchers having been
attacked by sexually active orangs. Of course, at first, we dismissed
this as a fantasy and a joke...that is, of course, until it actually
happened to someone we knew. Even then...  But now, here's some new
info FYI.
