LOS ANGELES, November 30, 2021--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Leif Cocks, world-renowned orangutan expert and founder of The Orangutan Project, is a featured guest on the Impact Podcast with John Shegerian this week. The show is hosted by Shegerian, Co-Founder and Executive Chairman of ERI, the nation’s leading fully integrated IT and electronics asset disposition provider and cybersecurity-focused hardware destruction company.

The Orangutan Project was established in Australia in 1998 by Cocks as a result of his almost 30 year career working with orangutans. He has been a key player in developing conservation plans for orangutans and influencing positive change for orangutan protection and survival.

"It was a real pleasure to be interviewed by John Shegerian on the Impact Podcast," said Cocks. "His genuine interest in orangutan conservation and the work of The Orangutan Project made it feel more like an open conversation rather than an interview. As founder of The Orangutan Project I have been blessed to have had so many supporters from around the world share in our vision for a secure future for orangutan populations. Thanks to John and the Impact team for this opportunity to share this vision with a new audience and to spread the word about The Orangutan Project and our work to save the critically endangered orangutans and their rainforest habitat."

"It was an honor to have Leif on our show to tell his story and share the incredible work he and The Orangutan Project are doing to help save this beautiful species," said Shegerian. "Leif’s critical mission and initiatives make him a truly powerful example of how one person can make a significant impact and help make our world a better place. I’m sure our audience will be moved by his messages of hope for orangutans."
