Deforestation in remote places threaten entire ecosystems, that in some cases are the last bit of hope for certain species, like Orangutans.

Orangutans on the Southeast Asian islands of Borneo and Sumatra are now threatened by deforestation.

As you can see in the image below this animal clings onto the excavator that is encroaching onto its habitat removing everything in its path.

Indonesia and Malaysia is home to the only known Orangutan populations left in the wild. These scenes were captured on camera in West Kalimantan, Indonesia, as a demolition crews continue their deforestation of a section of the Sungai Putri Forest, a habitat of critically endangered Bornean orangutans.

This area of the world is under threat like many others from major industry, who are seeking economic advantages to further the global population of humanities demand for consumption.

This Orangutan is clinging on as the deforestation and tree clearing continues to destroy his home.
