Orangutan presentation

  1. 1. I am an Orangutan and my habitat is in Sumatra and Borneo.
  2. 2. Orangutans may lose nearly all their tropical forest habitat within 15 years, unless urgent action is taken now, to end rampant illegal logging.
  3. 3. Deforestation In 2006, Indonesia had the world's highest deforestation rate. Preliminary figures indicate that the nation may have lost more than 30,000 square kilometres of forest -- one of the largest areas of forest loss on record.
  4. 4. Greenhouse gas emissions released from burning and forest conversion have made Indonesia the third largest contributor to global warming.
  5. 5. Tanjung Puting National Park in southern Kalimantan on the island of Borneo is 400,000 hectares and the largest protected expanse of coastal tropical heath and peat swamp forest in southeast Asia. It's also one of the biggest remaining habitats for the critically endangered orangutan.
  6. 6. Oil palm has become the world's number one fruit crop, trouncing its nearest competitor, the humble banana?
  7. 7. Over the past five years, logging of rainforests in Borneo and Sumatra has accelerated for timber harvesting and oil palm plantations used for producing palm oil, an increasingly important source of biofuel.
  8. 8. Western consumers are directly fuelling the destruction of orangutan habitat and sensitive ecosystems as oil-palm plantations now cover millions of hectares across Malaysia and Indonesia.
  9. 9. The UN report, titled "The last stand of the orangutan: State of emergency", estimates that more than 73 percent of all logging in Indonesia is illegal and that illicit logging is now taking place, in 37 of the country's 41 national parks.
