Orangutans fight for their survival on a protected island

Sumatran orangutans are designated as Critically Endangered by the IUCN, with a population of just a few thousand, while the Borneo orangutan is considered Threatened. The UN calls the current status of the remaining orangutans “a conservation emergency.” Habitat destruction caused by the massive expansion of palm oil plantations is a primary reason orangutans are facing the threat of extinction. http://ran.org/indonesia%E2%80%99s-rainforests-biodiversity-and-endangered-species
