Due to habitat loss, all three orangutan species, including the newly discovered Tapanuli, are critically endangered. Additionally, orangutans are known as the largest arboreal mammals and the most socially solitary among the great apes.
In Indonesian and Malaysian languages, the word “orangutan” translates to “person of the forest”.
The critically endangered Bornean orangutan faces an extremely high risk of extinction, as evidenced by a staggering decline in population levels exceeding 50 percent over the last 60 years. Furthermore, their habitat has shrunk by more than 80 percent in the past two decades. Currently, it is estimated that the total population of wild Bornean orangutans ranges from 70,000 to 100,000 individuals.

“I firmly believe that we must protect biodiversity as it is of utmost importance. I want my daughter to experience tigers or polar bears as wild animals roaming on the planet or vaquitas in seas and oceans and not in zoos only or in books.”
