Orangutans

Orangutans are the world’s largest tree-climbing mammals. But their fIn addition, orangutans are hunted in some areas for food. They are also sometimes killed when they move into agricultural areas and destroy crops. orest habitat in Indonesia and Malaysia is rapidly disappearing, putting the future of Asia’s only great ape in peril.

Habitat loss is by far the greatest threat to orangutans. Huge tracts of forest have been cleared throughout their range and the land used for agriculture, particularly palm oil – a product that is found in more than half of packaged products in supermarkets around the world.

And fire is also a major threat. In 1997-98, the drainage of peat-swamp forest contributed to uncontrollable fires in Kalimantan, which lasted for 6 months and killed up to 8,000 orangutans.
