  • Conservation story

    Orangutans are fruit-eaters that hang around in tropical rainforests. The males are the largest tree-dwelling animals on Earth. The Sumatran orangutan, one of three orang species, used to be distributed across Sumatra and in northern Java. Now, it is classed as critically endangered because of its restricted range in northern Sumatra.

    The Sumatran orangutan is facing several big threats. Their habitat is being lost rapidly thanks to the conversion of forests to agriculture - including dreaded palm oil plantations. There are also lots of forest fires in Sumatra (often deliberately started to clear land), and orangutans are still being illegally taken from the wild to be kept in households as status symbols.

    Conservation organisations are fighting for the protection of these unique apes. They are working hard to slow down further deforestation and conserve swathes of important orangutan habitat. One of the best small changes you can make is to try and reduce your palm oil consumption.
