Bornean Orangutan

webmotherandchildorangutan1

The Bornean Orangutan population has decreased about 50% in the last 60 years. These animals live in lowland forests and tropical swamps. They can weigh from 66-220 pounds. One of the main reasons that these animals have had a signifiant decline in there population is because of the trade of baby orangutan’s. 200-500 baby orangutans are traded very monty for pets. Another thing that has caused them to become critically endangered is that each skull is worth $70 in the in town market. They are also killed because they travel through farms and “destroy” the farmers crops. Please help save the Bornean Orangutan from complete extinction
