JAKARTA, Indonesia — Villagers living on the Indonesian side of Borneo killed at least 750 endangered orangutans in a year, some to protect crops from being raided and others for their meat, a new survey shows.
For meat. Makes me think of cannibalism. Guess that’s just me. So yeah, here we are with more Indonesia news.
The situation with these amazing human cousins was first brought to my attention by Dan and Jocelyn Tefft, of Treebanking LLC and their involvement with the Orangutan Land Trust.
The question is now being asked, “Are Orangutans in Indonesian Borneo doomed to extinction? It’s not looking good. Of course, whether or not they’ll even have a forest to live in, is also in question. A very sad situation indeed.
If you can help, please do.
