but there's great stuff online about him, including good TED talks: http://www.ted.com/talks/willie_smits_restores_a_rainforest.html

Willie Smits is my all time hero!



He's also written a book, Thinkers of the Jungle, which is mostly about the orangutans, but the last chapter is about his work replanting the forest and establishing a viable village and economy for the human people, too.
