Information about the Bornean Orangutan:
The Bornean Orangutan is one of two species of orangutan (the other being the Sumatran.) It is native to the island of Borneo, which is the largest island in Asia and the third largest in the world. The Bornean Orangutan is the third largest of the great apes, behind the two species of gorilla. It is the largest in Asia. Large males can weigh about 165 pounds (75 kg) with the females being smaller. They have very long arms which help them navigate the dense jungles where they live. Currently, this primate can be found in the two Malaysian states of Sabah and Sarawak, and three of the four Indonesian Provinces of Kalimantan. It is highly endangered due to habitat loss and illegal hunting. 100 years ago there were thought to be 315,000 orangutans in the wild. There are now less than 6,600 left in Sumatra, and less than 54,000 in Borneo.
