The ever-increasing demand in developed countries for palm oil and timber is decimating the rainforests at a terrifying rate, and consequently its orangutan population and all life within the forests as well. If nothing is done to halt this devastation, the orangutan could be facing extinction in the wild within the next 10 years.  http://www.opf.org/

The statistics paint a grim picture. According to the World Resources Institute, more than 80 percent of the Earth’s natural forests already have been destroyed. Up to 90 percent of West Africa’s coastal rain forests have disappeared since 1900. Brazil and Indonesia, which contain the world’s two largest surviving regions of rain forest, are being stripped at an alarming rate by logging, fires, and land-clearing for agriculture and cattle-grazing.

Fires raging in an Indonesian swamp forest may have killed a third of the rare Sumatran orangutans. About 200 still live there. Only 12,267 hectares (30,311 acres) of Tripa’s original 60,000 hectares (148,260 acres) of forest remain.The rest has been broken up and degraded as palm oil companies drain the swamp and terminate the life of the forests.

While conservation has long been science driven, success will ultimately come down to changing the way people relate to nature.

Guinness World Records declared in 2008 that Indonesia had the world’s fastest deforestation rate. Borneo alone has lost more than 50 percent of its original forest cover; half of that loss occurred in the past 20 years due to logging, mining, fire, development of palm oil plantations and other habitat-destroying human activities.
