        Orangutan Sign Language | The Ape Who Went to College

        These images from My Wild Affair - The Ape Who Went To College focus on Chantek, the orangutan raised as a human child at the University of Tennessee in Chattanooga during the 1970s and 1980s. Taught to speak in sign language by Dr. Lyn Miles, Chantek is now living among his own kind at Zoo Atlanta in one of the largest zoological collections of orangutans in the US, although he describes himself as an "orangutan person."
