Meet Gibby

& all her friends

Ever notice that cartoon animals are often wearing clothes?

Or they're living in zoos...

Or they're causing trouble breaking rules in people's homes and apartments.

Real wild animal don't wear pants.

They don't live in confined spaces....

And, even though every little ape certainly LOVES an adventure,

they're never breaking the house rules when they're free in the jungle!

But do you know what wild animals ARE doing?

They're curiously exploring the world,

solving problems and overcoming obstacles.

They're loving life playing harmoniously

with their friends and families.

And they're learning to be who they are meant to be

growing up in the jungle with courage and strength.

How do we know?

Well, you know we know gibbons.

In fact, we've spent A LOT of time in the jungle.

And after more than a decade of gibbon loving & jungle adventures you can bet Jackie's got a few stories to tell.

maybe it's time to start writing about what life is REALLY like in the jungle.

But not in a scientific 'this is this' and 'that is that' kind of way.

Introducing, dun-da-da-daaaaaa...

But....

  So we got to thinking:

.... In a way that's fun and real, enchanting and... JUST for kids.

(though we've got the science in there to back it up too).

Social:

 Threats:

Hylobates Lar

White-handed gibbons are diurnal and arboreal animals, meaning they are awake during the day and spend their time high up in the treetops.

Gibbons love to eat fruits, especially figs, but they also eat young leaves and insects, like termites, too. Gibbons monitor their trees regularly, changing their diet monthly as fruits seasonally ripen.

Gibbons live in small family units, and have 1 offspring every 3-4 years. Families form strong bonds and remain close for life.

Logging; hunting & trapping; agricultural and urban expansion.

Drumlet is a Black Giant Squirrel, he lives in the jungles

of South East Asia making his home in tree hollows.

Ratufa bicolor

Black giant squirrels are diurnal and arboreal animals, meaning they are awake during the day and spend most of their time in the treetops.

Like gibbons, black giant squirrels eat fruits and leaves, so they often spend time near each other high up in the trees where the fruit is ripe.

Black giant squirrels tend to live on their own, and have offspring every 8-9 years with small litters of only 1-2 babies.

Agricultural and urban expansion; logging; hunting & trapping.

Asiatic Black Bear

Ursus thibetanus

Asiatic black bears are diurnal and primarily live in subtropical forests, but they also live in grasslands, shrublands and wetlands in more northern climates of Asia.

Asiatic black bears vary their diet based on what's available each season. They often eat fruits, shoots, forbs, and leaves, but also eat insects and nuts or scavenge meat opportunistically.

Asiastic black bears live alone, but mothers have 1-2 cubs every 2 years caring for them until they are ready to be on their own.

Hunting & trapping; logging; agricultural expansion; roadways.

Habitat:

 Threats:

Buceros bicornis

Great hornbills are diurnal and live in subtropical forests. They don't migrate like some other birds, mate for life, and require large trees for building their nests

Great hornbills eat fruit, and like gibbons they love to eat figs. But great hornbills will also eat eggs, amphibians, reptiles, insects, mammals and small birds opportunistically.

Great hornbills live in pairs and small groups, but congregate in flocks of more than 200 birds during breeding season.

Oh no! Did you hear?

Gibby and her friends need your help!

Gibby's cousins in the wild are having a hard time. Their forest

homes are being cut down by people who want to use their trees.

It seems some people have forgotten how important trees are for EVERYONE to SHARE.

healthy soil, safe gibbons, and a happy planet.

So Gibby's got a plan to help!
