The name ‘orangutan’ means ‘man of the forest’, and this guy certainly looks like an alpha sort of bloke! There are are two species of orangutan, the Borean and the Sumatran, and as we now all know, both are threatened by Palm Oil plantations in S.E. Asia, as well as habitat destruction from rubber plantations and timber clearing. According to the WWF, the Bornean orangutan is now estimated to number about 45,000-69,000 (Endangered) and the Sumatran about 7,500 (Critically Endangered).
