Large, powerful, visually stunning and yet so vulnerable, orangutans are struggling for space in our modern world. Emma says ”Wildlife shouldn’t have to validate why they deserve the right to have the room to exist. ‘Striding On’ is confident, brash, saying don’t ignore me, I am here. With added gratitude to conservationists who ‘stride on’ through difficult times.”
