Here you see a five-year-old Sumatran orangutan that keeps all its presents carefully. They are also natural habitat of Borneo, Malasia. Thier population is dwindling because of man’s greed for acquiring farm land for palm oil generation. They can get decimated pretty soon unless some joint action for saving them is taken.
