If you like Meerkat Manor, don't miss the premiere of Orangutan Island – it's similar to Kid Nation, except the reality here includes 35 orangutan "children of the forest" brought to live on an island, and learn to live together in a community.
The participating orangutans are from the Nyaru Menteng Orangutan Rescue and Rehabilitation Center in Borneo. Through this innovative project, they will have the opportunity to live on a protected island, where we can watch their development... and they learn to survive in the wild. Orangutan Island is the foundation for the largest primate rescue project in the world.
Check it out tonight on Animal Planet at 9 p.m. (ET/PT)
