Orangutans are endangered. They have become extinct in some parts of Asia, according to the San Diego Zoo. Most of their forest habitat in Borneo and Sumatra has been lost to make room for palm oil plantations.
“Orangutan Amazing“, part of our “Amazing Posters” series aims at celebrating this formidable ape who shares 97 to 99% of the same DNA of ours, humans.
Some studies are predicting that, should deforestation carry on at the current rate, we could see the species to disappear by 2080.
Palm oil illegal farming is the biggest threat for the survival of the species. Unscrupulous trees removal practices however are on the up like the demand of palm oil worldwide.
Buy responsibly, save orangutans.
