Location of Bornean Orang Utan
The distribution of Orangutan on Borneo is rapidly decreasing, as humans reduce 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.
