Title: SEARCH FOR THE GREAT APES
Movie ID: VT2193
Movie Number: 2193
Description: Orangutans and gorillas in the wild.; In the jungles of Borneo, anthropologist Birute Galdikas-Brindamour and her husband Rod are training orphaned orangutans, raised in captivity, to survive on their own, and studying an orangutan called Nick in his natural habitat. Neither job is easy. The young apes are reluctant to leave the couple, and Nick is reluctant to get close.; In the highlands of Africa's Rwanda, zoologist Diane Fossey has had better luck befriending the shy but unpredictable mountain gorilla. One family is seen at play and foraging for food. Used to Fossey's presence, they allow her to approach and even touch them. But her biggest scientific breakthrough may be in deciphering the gorillas' "language," for she has analyzed as many as 17 different gorilla vocalizations.; Richard Kiley is the narrator.;

Fire Science

"I love the fast pace environment, the people in the profession, and the adrenaline rush of running into a burning building or saving someone’s life," she says.

Rondeau chose Lake Superior State University because it offers the first accredited four-year fire science degree in the United States. She also jumped at the challenge of LSSU's Honors program, which requires her to complete 21 Honors credits, including 10 credits for an Honors seminar/thesis project.
