In my opinion, books are the best accessory.

Suryia Swims! The True Story of How and Orangutan Learned to Swim by Bhagavan “Doc” Antle with Thea Feldman, photographs by Barry Bland – Touching, thoughtful book about an orangutan who breaks past the fear of swimming with the help of his best friend, a dog… The accompanying video has important messages about orangutan advocacy.
Goodreads Summary: “Suryia is not your average orangutan. In the first book about him, Suryia and Roscoe, Suryia found an unusual best friend: a dog named Roscoe. Now Suryia jumps into an unusual new hobby: swimming!
Orangutans don’t swim; it doesn’t come naturally to them. But Suryia shows that adventures await those who are willing to try something new.
Set on a preserve for endangered animals, The Institute of Greatly Endangered and Rare Species (T.I.G.E.R.S.), here is another true tale of an original orangutan—the first ever known to swim!”
