Baby Orangutans In Borneo
Industrial logging, unsustainable logging, clearing of land, and overexploitation are impacting the population of the orangutans. Their species are disappearing, and scientists consider them a critically endangered species. More than 50% of the orangutan population lives outside protected forest areas. The palm oil and timber industry pose major threats to the forest. As seen in this photo, the International Animal Rescue takes care of these orphaned orangutans and rehabilitates them, in the hopes of reintroducing them back into the environment. They do this by helping the orangutans forage for food and make nests while interacting with other orangutans their age (World Wild Life).
