Last of the Orangutans (Borneo, Indonesia)

Last of the Orangutans (Borneo, Indonesia)

"Willie Smitts and a small group of conservationists stand between the orangutan and its extinction in the wild." -Smithsonian Magazine
One hundred years ago there were over 300,000 orangutans; today their number has been reduced to around 15,000 by fires, logging, and poaching in the Indonesian islands of Sumatra and Borneo. In Kalimantan, Borneo, Willie Smits, a world-renowned Dutch primatologist, devotes his expertise to save these animals from the very real threat of extinction. Orangutans require a lot of wooded space; thus we learn that a "debt-for-nature-swap," which allows a country to make a commitment to set aside a piece of nature forever in return for reducing its foreign debt, is being considered; also that the Balikpapan Orangutan Survival (BOS) Foundation is receiving donations worldwide to help the local people here and to set aside a very large area of land forever.
