Project Description

The orangutan, literally meaning “person of the forest” is a long-haired orange primate closely related to human beings. These gentle and solitary beings, found exclusively in the rainforests of Indonesia and Malaysia, are currently facing extinction. The greatest threat to their survival can be found in products we use every day. This information graphic is intended to educate a general audience about orangutan biology & behaviour and the urgent need for further conservation efforts.
