Fossil records show that orang-utans have been here on Earth for more than 800,000 years and populations once spread from China to as far as Sulawesi.
Today, orang-utans in the wild can only be found on the islands of Borneo and Sumatra.
Orang-utan numbers are declining due to:
• Habitat destruction caused by land-use changes for timber harvesting and monoculture plantations.
• Hunting by farmers in retaliation for the destruction to their crops.
Symbolically adopt an orang-utan today and help WWF-Malaysia to:
• Carry out restoration of logged-over and fire-impacted forest area by replanting a mixture of native tree species.
• Promote protection of crucial habitats.
• Increase awareness on orang-utan conservation.
