Protecting the forests where orangutans live is the first priority in terms of ensuring orangutan survival as species in the wild. Illegal activities, such as logging, clear-cutting, and poaching, represent real and constant threats to the survival of all wildife in the forest, including orangutan populations.
When forests are damaged, fragmented, burned, or cut, orangutans are exiled from the only life they know. Orangutans driven out of their arboreal homes are slow, helpless, and extremely vulnerable to people, disease and starvation.
