Orangutan distribution on Borneo (Indonesia, Malaysia)
Hugo Ahlenius, UNEP/GRID-Arendal
The distribution of Orangutan on Borneo is rapidly decreasing, as mankind is reducing the available habitat for the apes. The loss of forest, through logging, clearing and burning, means reduced opportunities for hiding and food collection. In addition, orangutans are hunted for food and to be held in captivity.
