rita goldnerRita Goldner regularly visits the Phoenix Zoo to sketch and paint animals, especially the orangutans. She was aware of their endangered status, and became passionate about the protection of a thriving wild environment for orangutans. With this goal in mind, Rita wrote and illustrated Orangutan: A Day in the Rainforest Canopy. She hopes that young readers will grow up loving and respecting orangutans – and pick up the gauntlet.
