Orangutans and iPads. Technology as Enrichment.

Stories about iPads as the latest enrichment tool for orangutans at the Milwaukee Zoo have gone viral. This is not surprising. The project is amazing and certainly sparks the imagination as people see these apes enjoying their apps as much as we do. Many of the articles covering the story have chosen to offer digitally enhanced photos of the orangs with iPads. Some even make interesting leaps about what might be next for other animals. I thought you all might like to see what is really going on at the Milwaukee Zoo on this project straight from the source. It's a pretty amazing little video. Enjoy!
