Leo has led on many humanitarian, conservation and animal welfare projects around the world, though prior to his time on Borneo has always taken more of a consultant’s role. This was the route of his initial entry to Malaysia, thinking back in 2005 that he would stay for two to three weeks to consult for Matang and assist with the creation of a rehabilitation strategy for the resident orangutan. Evidently there was something worth sticking around for, and the organisation he has created on Borneo, Orangutan Project, is now leading the way with non-profit business ventures (from tourism to bars!) to create unique and sustainable revenue streams for Leo's conservation goals. Leo is from England.
