This young baby is comforted by holding onto his mother in the jungle, Semenggoh, Sarawak, East Malaysia, Borneo, South East Asia. (featured in The Best Of Red Bubble and others.) Orangutans, Pongo pygmaeus, are highly endangered due to habitat destruction mainly due to the establishment of Palm Oil plantations. If we all stopped buying food and other products which include palm oil there would be a chance of saving these amazing animals.
